International Girls in ICT Day is an opportunity for girls and young women to see and experience ICTs in a new light encouraging them to consider a future in technology. To date, over 111,000 girls and young women have taken part in more than 3,500 events held in 140 countries around the world.
This year the U.S. Mission aimed to expand the reach of ITU’s annual Girls in ICT day in Geneva and partnered with the YWCA to bring five young women from South Africa, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, Myanmar and Chile. The Olympic museum in Lausanne kindly allowed the girls to explore many of the ways technology skills can be applied!
