International Girls in ICT Day is a global movement encouraging girls and young women to pursue science, technology, engineering, art
and math (STEAM) education and careers.
Join us on April 27 to gain insights into climate change and how you can take immediate actions to make a difference. Learn from female leaders in the field how developing digital skills now can help protect our planet!
The time to close the global gender gap has increased from 99.5 years to 135.6 years (WEF, 2022).
The demand for tech workers globally will rise by 55 percent by 2030 (McKinsey, 2019).
Worldwide, 40 million to 160 million women may need to transition across occupations by 2030 as automation transforms work. (McKinsey, 2019).
Women lose jobs at 2X the rate of men, bringing the total number of women living in extreme poverty to 435 million (UN Women, 2020).
STEAM careers offer a great opportunity to address the gender disparity. But sometimes you need to see it to believe it! By hearing and seeing the possibilities that a career in tech can offer them, and what STEAM can create for humanity, girls and young women can be encouraged
to forge their own path in STEAM.
That’s where our Girls in ICT Day events come in, providing valuable information on career pathways, career attainment and advancement.
