13 - 30 August 2018

Haifa, Israel

Information brochure  ENG     RUS

The use of ICTs can transform existing gender-based inequalities into opportunities and resources; it can increase the flexibility of working arrangements in many sectors and empower women and girls with new tools and solutions. The growing role of ICTs in addressing gender inequality has been recognised in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as an important pathway of development.

The international workshop on “Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for the Advancement of Small Businesses” contributes to capacity building and provides support, guidance and managerial tools to women entrepreneurs on the use of ICTs in business. The workshop discusses the various ways in which the new technologies can influence small business management and how women entrepreneurs can both benefit from and cope with the challenges of ICTs.

The workshop will cover the following themes: 

  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their impact on small business

  • Information and communication technologies (ICTs) and new opportunities for employment

  • The role of ICTs and social media in small business management

  • The position of women entrepreneurs at times of rapid global change

  • Role of project management tools in SME activities

  • Support systems for micro and small enterprises in Israel, including technological incubators

  • Psychology as a tool for successful business communication
