07 Feb, 2013
Next April 25th the International Girls in ICT Day will be celebrated. The initiative is backed by ITU Member States and wants to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of ICTs.
Each year, on the 4th Thursday in April, the International Girls in ICT Day is celebrated. During this day, Ministries of ICT, Education, Labour, Youth, National ICT Regulatory Authorities, ICT companies, academic institutions, relevant UN agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders are encouraged to organize Girls in ICT day events.
During such an event, girls and university students are invited to spend the day at the office of ICT companies and government agencies so they better understand the opportunities the ICT sector holds for their future.
The ITU Secretary General invites all ITU Member States and Sector Members to organize events attracting as many girls and young women as possible.
