The field of information and communications technology (ICT) continues to evolve rapidly, opening up new professional development opportunities for girls.


International Girls in ICT Day is a global initiative to raise awareness of the importance of digital skill acquisition for girls.


Inspiring female role models show that a career in technology can be as diverse and interesting and as glamorous as you want it to be.
