FTX & AWID Trip Reflection

The Feminist Tech Exchange was a specific capacity building workshop to help women & feminist rights organizations, including some IDRC partners, improve their ICT technical skills, and thus advance their dissemination methods in the online web 2.0 environment. Hosted by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC, long-time partner of IDRC), the workshop also attempted to integrate gender analysis and current ICT4D and feminist issues such as communication rights. Lastly, FTX allowed for the organizations and ICT4D experts to network in an open space as well as to improve the trainer’s facilitation skills. The intent was also for FTX participants to display or use their newly developed skills and knowledge at the AWID Forum.
