Happy Girls in ICT Day to all Caribbean Women in Tech

 

 

 

 

 

Yes today is Girls in ICT Day thanks to ITU. What is Girls in ICT Day? Here is the organisation’s rationale….”Despite the obvious benefits, many girls never even consider a career in ICTs.  There is a lack of awareness among students, teachers and parents on what a career in ICT could offer.  Attitudes can change when girls are invited into companies and government agencies to meet ICT professionals and see what life is like on the job.  For this reason, ITU members agreed to recognize Girls in ICT Days on the 4th Thursday of every April in ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 70 (Guadalajara, 2010).”
