This past week, 70 attendees met for the DNS Women networking breakfast at ICANN 47 in Durban, to continue forwarding the organization’s mission: to provide Encouragement, Inspiration and Active Support of Women in the DNS industry. The group was founded in Mexico City in 2009, and remained active at each ICANN meeting, and through social networking.

Local women leaders are invited to address the audience during meetings of DNS Women, and share their expertise and challenges they have encountered in business pursuits. In Durban, Anriette Esterhuysen, who was involved in the recent First African School on Internet Governance, addressed the group. She is the executive director of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), an international network of organizations working with Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) to support social justice and development.
