Who We Are

Now in its second year, Digital Frontiers has launched a first-of-its-kind capacity-building programme and professional certification for gender equality changemakers. The Gender Equality Changemakers Programme has been developed in response to the need and demand for gender equality change agents in organisations around the world. The programme seeks to mobilise a global network of highly competent changemakers who will accelerate progress toward gender equality within their organisations.

Our Faculty

Our faculty for the Gender Equality Changemaker Programme consists of highly respected subject matter experts and industry thought leaders. As you progress through the programme you will have the opportunity to engage with the faculty and learn directly from them as they share their in-depth knowledge with you.
