In 2012, Girls in ICT Day organizers from around the world found new and innovative ways to celebrate, raise awareness about the opportunities of the ICT sector and empower girls and young women with the knowledge that careers in ICT can be for them. All stakeholders created their own events, tailored to fit their needs and means, most involving from 20 to 500 girls. One country held over a thousand events nation-wide, made possible through widespread, high-level government support and public-private funding. In total, nearly 90 countries organized events empowering more than 30,000 girls worldwide.
Why don’t we try to reach even more girls and young women on International Girls in ICT Day 2013? Some countries may wish to organize nation-wide events, whether in schools or ICT companies. Others may wish to hold a series of regional events, while some may organize their country’s first-ever Girls in ICT Day event.
