Hi everyone,
Sharing a funding opportunity for gender projects. Last year I nominated an
OpenStreetMap community which received the grant, so it would be worth a
try for anyone running gender programs!

Subject: EQUALS in Tech Awards

Dear EQUALS partners;

It’s time to send out the call to find great projects deserving of the *2020
EQUALS in Tech Awards*. We hope we can count on you to spread the word
about the opportunity these awards present to the finalists and winners.
Beyond just bragging rights, the recognized initiatives gain a powerful
network of EQUALS allies, former winners, and community members, all
working toward the same goal: gender digital equality.

As you know, the EQUALS in Tech Awards have been presented since 2013 (they
started out as the GEM-Tech Awards), making this the 7th annual celebration
of groundbreaking work in digital access, skills, leadership, and research.
We know that it is more important than ever to help boost the successes and
stories of programs and people around the world helping women and girls
gain the full benefits of digital equality.

To maximize the number and diversity of nominated initiatives, we need your
help. If the entire EQUALS partnership mobilizes our social media networks
to announce the nominations, we have a chance this year to reach every
corner of the globe and give even the smallest projects the opportunity to
show their progress and perhaps move toward growth, scalability and the
incredible results that the world so desperately needs.

We are asking for your help in two areas:

   1. *Assist with the call for nominations* (see details below, and feel
   free to use the attached social media cards to promote the awards)
   2. *Ideas and contributions for a prize package* suitable for a virtual
   event (in previous years, the winners got a paid trip to the award ceremony)

The award nomination period will be from *9 June – 1 August 2020*. Awards
are given in five categories:

   - Access
   - Skills
   - Leadership in Tech
   - Leadership in SME
   - Research

In August, a group of finalists will be identified by the judging panel and
those finalists will be promoted widely on our networks. The winners in
each category will be announced in the autumn at a venue to be determined.
