On the occasion of the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women, Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI) highlights the need for the international community to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges to women’s empowerment. MBBI underscores the importance of nations taking action to promote greater women’s participation through inclusivity, self-determination, and peacebuilding—to achieve gender parity. Particularly, MBBI recognizes the unique challenges of rural women and girls, and how creating educational and professional opportunities can propel these women to empowerment. MBBI believes that modern tools such as media, information, and communication technology can affect positive change for women’s empowerment, and advance principles of peace, security, and collaboration.
MBBI’s founding member and CEO, Prabha Sankaranarayan is a panelist on Women Using Technology to Advance Agency, Advocacy, Capacity, and Peace.
