Open days at ICT companies, government agencies, universities or ​​any ICT-related institutions

 

Open days are another excellent way to celebrate Girls in ICT Day. ICT companies, departments, government agencies, universities and research facilities around the world have opened their doors to girls on Girls in ICT Day. Contact local schools and invite the girls for a fun and instructive day. You can introduce the girls to your organizations' work and show them some exciting "behind the scenes" places, such as laboratories or R&D centres. Try to avoid long presentations and always when possible include interactive and hands-on activities. Meeting and hearing from female role models is important when visiting ICT-related organizations. Girls tend to be sensitive to subtle cues and seeing only men in the organization might have a bigger influence on them than anything you say. Make sure girls see and meet many female staff members and get a chance to talk with them.
