As global development professionals across all sectors work to adapt to a digital era, it’s increasingly important to stay up-to-date on how digital interventions and safeguarding can enhance impact.
The webinar From browsing to behavior change: How digital interventions influence offline change amongst adolescent girls, is the first in a two-part series hosted by Devex and Girl Effect. In this webinar, take a closer look at how organizations are designing and engaging children and youth online through the use of mobile devices.
The webinar demonstrates how organizations can move beyond a compliance lens to a more holistic approach. Speakers Kecia Bertermann, technical director of digital research and learning at Girl Effect, and John Fraser, president and CEO of think-tank NewKnowledge, share their experience with engaging adolescent girls through digital devices and content.
The second webinar in the series, Best practice safeguarding in the digital era, addresses the importance of digital safeguarding — an important practice for development organizations that design programs to engage children and youth online.
While the digital world is rich with opportunity, it’s rife with safeguarding pitfalls. Speakers Natalie Au, global gender director at Girl Effect, and Linda Raftree, adviser on girls’ digital privacy, safety, and security and digital good practice at Girl Effect, discuss how to make the most of digital data while also protecting the privacy of the communities being served.
There’s a real need to move beyond compliance toward a more holistic approach. Here are more practical tips and advice on safeguarding in the digital era.
