2021 Theme: Connected Girls, Creating Brighter Futures

While girls across the world tend to outperform boys in reading and writing skills, they continue to be under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Through International Girls in ICT Day, we work with partners build awareness about the gender digital divide, support technology education and skills training, and encourage more girls and young women to actively pursue careers in STEM.

Our Goal

Encourage girls and young women to pursue STEM education

Inspire girls and young women to work in STEM careers

Engage the community and promote collaboration through partnerships
