International Girls in ICT Day
2022 Theme: Access & Safety
Our 2022 theme, “Access and Safety”, was selected in consultation with girls and young women to highlight some of the challenges they face as they begin their journey in the digital environment –and to provide many solutions and ideas for lowering barriers and improving safety.
For girls to thrive in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), they need the knowledge, support, and empowerment of their communities. When girls can safely access and explore the digital world, they can start to imagine future STEM careers, ICT education and futures in technology for themselves.
