22 April 2021: Girls in ICT Day

22 April 2021 is Girls in ICT Day. And this year is the 10th anniversary of this United Nations observed day.

Girls in ICT Day is a great day for nonprofits, charities, NGOs, schools, government programs and other cause-based programs to create volunteering opportunities in support of encouraging more girls to participate in ICT-related activities.

ITU, a UN agency, recommends these activities with girls in association with the day:

  • Online training on Coding (no in-person training now because of COVID)
  • Web-based Robotics Trainings
  • Virtual Hackathon
  • Mobile Application Building
  • STEAM Learning
  • Online Blogging Competition
  • Live Dialogues
  • E-mentoring
  • Technology for Good online innovation challenges

You can register your Girls In ICT event or get ideas for activities to hold in conjunction with the day and use the tag #GirlsInICT to promote your activity on social media. If you create such an event, I hope you will share info about it in the comments - I would love to see any WorldPulse members involved in this day. I'm not affiliated with ITU or the UN - I am just very passionate about girls (& women!) in ICT!
