Digital tools for gender equality and inclusion

Published: 11 March 2019

The study explores how digital tools for gender equality and inclusion are designed, communicated and used in organizations and society. The study is based on practical examples from Sweden, in the form of digital apps, tests, process support, training, etc.

Gender equality initiatives in organizations and society are often conducted with the help of different types of support, e.g. lectures and advice from experts or written literature and manuals. Traditionally, the support has been analogous, in the sense that lectures are conducted on site and that literature is read in printed format. Recently, the support has increasingly been digitalized, in the sense that it is developed, communicated and used by means of information and communication technology. In this study, digital tools for gender equality and inclusion are explored that utilize the mechanisms of digital technology, in the form of apps or web pages with interactive features and combined formats.
