Girl Effect has teamed up with Devex, the media platform for the global development community, to present two webinars on digital behaviour change and safeguarding.

Review the webinar synopses below:

Can digital interventions influence behavior change?

May 23, 10am ET / 3pm BST 

Girl Effect’s Technical Director of Digital Research and Learning Kecia Bertermann and New Knowledge’s President and CEO John Fraser will shine a spotlight on the fast-evolving practice of using online tools and products to share messages and influence change.

They will outline how online interventions influence offline behaviour, and discuss best practice in digital communications, how digital communications bridge the gap between knowledge and behaviour, and what content and formats work best.

Best practice safeguarding in the digital era

May 30, 10am ET / 3pm BST 

Girl Effect’s Global Director of Gender, Natalie Au, and Advisor on Digital Privacy, Safety and Security Linda Raftree, will consider how to use data safely, while protecting online users and respecting their privacy.

They will also look at what safeguarding considerations enhance mandatory data requirements, and how GDPR will affect participants in development programmes.

Each session will include a Q&A with our speakers.
