Girls in ICT Day 2014, 24 April

​​​International Girls in ICT Day @ITU


With the number of school girls opting to study technology-related disciplines on the decline in most countries worldwide, ITU is committed to championing the catalytic role a tech career can play in creating exciting, far-reaching opportunities for women and girls.

To help inspire girls to consider a future in technology, ITU established 'Girls in ICT Day'​ back in 2010 and supports the global organization of activities every year on the fourth Thursday in April. Currently in its 4th year, global momentum around Girls in ICT Day continues to grow with over 100 countries expected to hold events hosted by governments, private sector and NGOs in 2014.

Events at ITU Premises

Back at ITU Headquarters in Geneva, in ICT Discovery museum, ITU organizes workshops for local school girls on satellites, coding, mobile apps, digital music and photo blogging, together with the chance to meet expert role models.

This year, ITU will host Girls in ICT Day on 15 April, 2014 to account for local school holidays.
The International Girls in ICT Day is officially recognized on 24 April, 2014.
