For decades promoting gender equality and empowering women has been on the development agenda. We know that empowering women, and particularly young women, to make their own choices for an active participation in the economy makes a difference on so many fronts.

Dalberg-Digital Sharing's Next Frontier
Thoughtfully designed digital sharing connects youth in emerging markets with employers that need immediate short-term work. Employers find freelancers through an online platform that aligns availability, pay, and skills with the task needed. The platform matches and verifies the identity of both parties, and facilitates the digital transfer of payments, IP, and confidentiality agreements as necessary. The freelancer provides high-quality work, and the employer pays, provides feedback, and rates their experience.
