Girls in ICT Day 2016

Girls in ICT Day @ITU HQ, 28 April 2016, Geneva, Switzerland


The Geneva celebration of Girls in ICT Day was held on 28 April 2016 at ITU Headquarters in the heart of Geneva.

In collaboration with Expanding Your Horizons (a nonpro­fit organization dedicated to providing STEM experiences to middle and high school girls interested in STEM activities and careers), schools from Geneva have been actively involved in organizing their own hands-on workshops for inspiring local school girls to become ICT creators with the support of experts from ITU, UNOSAT, Futurekids and Techspark Academy.

The girls participating in the school workshops were invited to the ITU HQ for a half day celebration where they had the opportunity to present their work and what they learned during the workshops to the ITU officials, the diplomatic community, ITU Staff and ITU Delegates .
