Jordanian women in the ICT space

The overall objective of this study is to evaluate and shed light on the status of women in the ICT sector in Jordan as part of ensuring gender equality and women empowerment in the economic sector. A number of factors have been examined, including the quality and availability of education and training, and how well the educational system equips students with the needed skills; employment and entrepreneurship reality among women, and the challenges faced that hinder their effective participation in the workforce; and the challenges that women face in the ICT workplace. Information was collected though desktop research, focus group sessions, and interviews with key stakeholders.
