Girls in ICT Day, celebrated on the 4th Thursday of every April, is an initiative started by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) that aims to empower and encourage girls and young women to consider careers in the sector of technology.
The purpose of the day is to inspire action and identify workable solutions at the European and global level that would address the issue of the female leaking pipeline in ICT training and careers. This year the European Commission, the European Parliament and the ITU are joining forces to ensure the maximum visibility for advancing the cause of getting more women into technology. A discussion of the European-level agenda for advancing the cause of Women in ICT during the parliamentary hearing will have two angles: professional women in ICT careers and ICT skills for ICT jobs.
