Imagine being at the IIC’s annual conference in the year 2028 with an equal number of women and men experts in the fields of ultrabroadband infrastructure, all-shared spectrum, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and algorithms, robotics, automated vehicles, torts law for autonomous devices, cyber jurisdiction, virtual labour communities, meta platforms, collaborative media, internet governance and cryptocurrencies.
The IIC president took us through the technological and institutional evolution of society, citizens and ICT in the data economy since 2018. “The past 10 years have seen unprecedented transformation and yet, we are still witnessing violence and discrimination against women – but now coming mainly from autonomous machines that have been fed with centuries of gender bias, stereotypes and discrimination from a long prevailing sexist society,” she highlighted.


Women have major barriers to reaching the top in ICT careers, and in just accessing technology in some countries – and all women face both offline and online violence, says ADRIANA LABARDINI INZUNZA.
