International Girls in ICT Day 2016 events

Competence Center Technology-Diversity-Equal Chances​

Germany, 2016, April 28​

Every year in April technical companies, companies with technical departments and technical training facilities, universities, and research centres are invited to organise an open day for girls – Girls'Day. Girls'Day – 'Future Prospects for Girls' initiated a large campaign in which a wide range of professions and activities is presented to girls of 10 years upwards. The vocational choices of girls are influenced in a very positive way.
For companies, Girls'Day has evolved as an important instrument of their recruitment policy.
The sixteenth Girls'Day in April 2016 was a great success: Nearly  9.600 institutions offered about 100.000 places for female students. It is considered the largest career orientation project for female students.
Among these were 1051 ICT-oriented events for interested girls. Participating organizations in the field of ICT were for example:
Cisco Systems Deutschland GmbH, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM Deutschland GmbH, Intel GmbH, SAP AG, T-Systems and Microsoft Deutschland GmbH.

The next Girls'Day will be held on April 27th, 2017. Girls'Day – 'Future Prospects for Girls' is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research and the Federal Ministry for Family Af-fairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
