September 26, 2023 @ 15:00 – September 26, 2023 @ 16:30

The IGC Secretariat, in partnership with the United Nations International Computing Centre (UNICC), cordially invite you to the online inter-hub launch event of the ‘I Say No To Sexism Online’ campaign on Tuesday 26 September from 15:00 to 16:30 CET.

Promoting a zero-tolerance approach towards gender-based violence and sexism in all its forms is one of the IGC’s strategic priorities. Following the successful implementation of its ‘I Say No to Sexism’ campaign, launched initially in 2018 at the UN Office at Geneva and relaunched in 2022, the IGC, in partnership with the UNICC, is now launching a second iteration of the campaign: ‘I Say No To Sexism Online’. The campaign seeks to tap into the potential of promoting gender equality through connective technology by building awareness and providing actionable pathways towards digital safety, online respect and a positive online culture for all.
