The principle objective was to use digital imagery and/or audio and other interaction to:

  • Promote the consideration of ICT or ICT-enabled careers,
  • Encourage and showcase effective ICT use,
  • Be a how-to template or testimony useful for approaching an ICT-enabled career.

Wednesday 27th April 2016  Afternoon 13:15 – 16:00 Hr.

The Venue was the Christ Church Foundation Secondary School. This was a career showcase event. Booths were set up by various companies, organizations, and individuals who work in the ICT sector. The idea was to have some sort of hands-on experience for the girls. For example, the Telecommunications Unit of the Barbados Government had a booth displaying spectrum management equipment where the girls were given the opportunity to operate some of the devices. The Spectrum Management Mobile vehicle was also on display. There was a meet-up type event where the students had a chance to mingle with women who work in the sector in a more relaxed environment. They interacted with the students, answered questions, and spoke about their experience working in ICT.
