Girls in Information and Communications Technology Day is 27 April
Each year, GWI joins the international community in celebrating Girls in ICT Day on the fourth Thursday of April. ICTs are crucial for pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September 2015. Supported by all International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Member States in ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 70, Girls in ICT Day encourages girls and young women to consider fields in ICT, therefore creating a symbiotic relationship; women enjoy greater gender equality in the workplace and technology companies benefit from a more diverse staff. As a male-dominated field, having more women in ICT will also serve to give women a greater voice, both in the office and through the services provided by technology companies.
