Anne Bouverot, GSMA, on Attracting Women to the Mobile Industry
GSMA

Women in senior positions across industries currently stands at around 20%. In the ICT sector the figure is between 3 and 5% and the numbers of women studying ICT related subjects, which has historically been relatively low, continues to diminish.

Anne Bouverot, Director General of the GSMA, met with Leading ICT journalist, Jennifer Baker, to talk about attracting more female talent into the mobile and ICT industries at the Connected Women event in Brussels.

“Already today, ICT companies all over the world are trying to hire young graduates and attract people, and they cannot fill all of their positions.”

ITU VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: ITU Girls in ICT Day 2013 at ITU in Geneva
See video

The U.S. Mission collaborated with the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) on a program to celebrate Girls in ICT Day, which included a series of technical workshops designed to give girls hands-on experience in programming computers, making films, designing mobile phone applications, and managing satellites. ITU launched Girls in ICT Day in 2010 to inspire girls to consider a career in technology as while women are half the world's population and half the world's talent, there's a persistent gender gap in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field. Ambassador Betty E. King spoke to the group of 70 students and impressed upon them of the importance of ICT and the opportunities it presents; it "has become increasingly the means with which people learn, become informed about the world around them, connect with friends and opportunities, and give themselves a voice." One of the Mission's first-tour Economic Officers, who earned a PhD in Computer Science, taught a workshop on programming and writing code. Her goal was to introduce the girls to the world of programming, demystify code, and open their eyes to the possibilities offered by a career in ICT.

This video was created to support the International Girls in ICT initiative. Du believes that seeing and hearing women who are successful in the ICT sector will make a great impact on young girls, and as a telecom company with many women across all departments, Du decided to let the female colleagues share their own advice and thoughts with young girls. The video features eight women, who take popular misconceptions about women in ICT head-on, and share a little on why they chose this line.
