The Caribbean Community Girls in ICT Partnership
Why commemorate International Girls in ICT day? While girls across the world tend to outperform boys in reading and writing skills, they continue to be under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Through International Girls in ICT Day, we work with partners build awareness about the gender digital divide, support technology education and skills training, and encourage more girls and young women to actively pursue careers in STEM.

Video Message from the ITU BDT Director
For girls and young women to thrive in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, they need to acquire skills to become both ICT users and creators in the digital world. That’s why, in consultation with youth, we identified “Digital Skills for Life” as our theme for Girls in ICT 2023.
