Digital jobs can help young women overcome constraints in the workforce, says report

Digital jobs can bring new employment opportunities for young women in developing countries, according to a new report by the Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) coalition. The report, titled Digital Jobs for Youth: Young Women in the Digital Economy, incorporates insights drawn from 19 case studies and lays out how jobs in the digital economy can increase young women’s productivity, earnings, and financial independence. S4YE is a multi-stakeholder coalition, housed in the Social Protection and Jobs Global Practice of the World Bank, that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. More information about the report can be found on the World Bank’s website.
