The Girls in ICT initiative of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is a global effort to raise awareness of empowering and encouraging girls and young women to consider studies and careers in information and communication technologies (ICTs), enabling both girls and technology companies to reap the benefits of greater female participation in the ICT sector. The initiative is committed to celebrating and commemorating the International Girls in ICT Day on the fourth Thursday of every April, as established by the ITU membership. See the Girls in ICT portal for further information. Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be looking at issues around encouraging girls and young women in their use of ICT in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more. And if you’re marking the day in some way linked to the Better Internet for Kids agenda, why not share an article with us - see our content contribution guidelines, or get in touch for more information.
