About Me

Iffat Gill is a human rights activist, digital strategist and social entrepreneur. She is the founder of ChunriChoupaal, an organization that empowers women leaders through modern information and communication technology (ICTs) and digital literacy.

Iffat has been at the forefront of shaping the policy debate of women’s digital inclusion for close to a decade, both in Pakistan and at international platforms and has advocated for the issue at the UN’s World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), UN’s Internet Governance Forum and more recently at European Parliament. Iffat has over 10 years of experience in youth and women empowerment projects with local and national organizations in Pakistan and Europe.
