Girls in ICT


Posted in: Projects | 20 April 2019


    What is Girls in ICT Day? ​

    International Girls in ICT Day, an initiative backed by all ITU Member States in ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 70 (Rev. Dubai, 2018), aims to encourage and empower girls and young women to consider studies and car​eers in the growing field of ICTs,​ enabling both girls and technology companies to reap the benefits of greater female participation in the ICT sector.

     

    International Girls in ICT Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of April ​. The ITU Secretary General invites ITU Member States, Sector Members, Associates and Academia to organize events attracting as many girls and young women as possible.

    Girls in ICT Day events make girls and young women aware of the vast possibilities ICTs offer, quelling misconceptions about the sector and inviting them to envision their future as ICT creators.

    The CARICOM Secretariat has been recognising this important day for the past five (5) years through workshops and exhibitions.
