Gender Equality 2.0 For the first time this year, the Senate of the City of Hamburg has awarded the Innovation in Digital Equality Award for equal opportunities and the visibility of women. Two women won the prize and 25,000€ prize money: Anja Schumann, founder of moinworld e.V., was one of them. The award was given by Katharina Fegebank on 18 October 2019. She also explained what is hidden behind the award: “With the IDEA Award we honor innovative concepts and outstanding achievements for equality in the digital space.
The award honours initiatives that introduce information technology topics in schools, vocational training and universities. “The IT skills shortage is hampering innovation, digitisation and growth in the Hamburg metropolitan region,” says Raphael Vaino, explaining the background to the award, which is therefore looking for initiatives that promote sustained interest and competence among children, young people and young adults. moinworld has taken 1st place at this year’s “ITEC Cares Award” of the IT-Executive Club of Hamburg@work.
