Kwanya, Tom; Wakunuma, Kutoma J.

A policy brief published by the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society. Digital technologies are now playing a major role in the everyday life of many people in Africa. Their use can be seen in health care, industry, education and business, among other areas and Kenya is at the forefront of this gig economy. However, a study conducted on gig workers using Upwork in South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Ghana concluded that about 60% of gig workers in these countries were male (Anwar & Graham, 2020). This policy brief offers concrete policy recommendations to promote and affirm gender inclusivity in Kenya's gig economy.
