International Women's Day 2015 and Beijing20+

International Women's Day 2015 and Beijing20+
On the 8th of March 2015, Computer Aid will be celebrating International Women's Day . Twenty years after the landmark Beijing conference, women and girls still have less power, voice and resources than men and boys. And these findings also apply to ICT access for women. As much as technology is key for development and more women have access to it, women are still left behind. We have to give women the ability to be connected in a fast pacing world where technology has become an essential element for employment and education. ICT4D organisations will have all eyes on the Beijing+20 59th Commission on the Status of Women in the coming week hoping that gender equality issues in ICT will be highlighted and actions will be taken to encourage gender related initiatives in the new technology field. Check our "In The Press" section for more information and Computer Aid's expectations for the Beijing+20 59th Commission on the Status of Women.

Do you stand out from the IT crowd? Nominate a #cooltechie.
With names like ‘computer nerds’ and ‘geeks’ used to describe those working in IT, it’s easy to see why the computing and IT industry struggles to attract interest as a career path from young people. In association with Computer Weekly, Daisy Group is looking for people working in the computing and IT industry, who have interesting jobs to act as role models to teach the next generation about the range of exciting career prospects available and the benefits of working in the industry. For many young people, trying to figure out what the future holds for them and what their career path should be is a difficult and bewildering process. Role models provide a valuable demonstration of what can be achieved and something to aspire to. The more we can relate to a person through their personal traits (e.g. age, background or interests), the more achievable their success appears to be. For every valid nomination, Computer Aid International will receive £1. Learn more how it works and nominate your #cooltechie .

Computer Aid International is a UK-registered ICT for development charity which aims to reduce poverty through practical ICT solutions. We collect IT equipment for distribution in hospitals, universities, schools and not-for-profit organisations in over 100 countries. Find out what equipment we accept, from monitors, to base units to peripherals, or make a financial donation.

We provide only the best professionally-refurbished PCs and laptops which have been cleaned, data-wiped, tested and refurbished by our team of expert volunteers. And thanks to these volunteers and our donors, prices are kept as low as possible – see if you fit our criteria and apply now.

We also work on numerous initiatives to increase access to ICT among poor and disadvantaged communities, providing e-learning courses, training and environmental advocacy – read a sample of project case studies.

This year, we have been granted the Royal Warrant of Appointment to the Queen as the official provider of Computer Recycling Services to Her Majesty.
