Promoting Gender Equality in the Telecommunications Industry

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation and brought new work styles to our lives. The need to stay connected in the physically contactless economy has created enormous opportunities for the telecommunications industry. However, in the APEC region, the representation of women in the telecommunications industry has remained low, especially in the leadership and technical positions. 

Therefore, Chinese Taipei launched the project Promoting Gender Equality in the Telecommunications Industry for the Inclusive Recovery, aiming to facilitate women's entry, stay, and promotion in the telecommunications industry and promote gender diversity, equality and inclusion in the telecommunications workforce and environment.

Chinese Taipei organized a virtual workshop on July 27-28, 2022, inviting female leaders and representatives of telecom companies to share their career development experience and workplace diversity and inclusion measures. The workshop discussed topics including female leadership, challenges and opportunities for women in digital transformation, and strategies of enhancing gender diversity and inclusion at workplace. Through expert presentations and discussion, this workshop aims to share best practices and propose policy recommendations on the promotion of women’s participation in the telecommunications industry.
