Girls in ICT Day

Girls in ICT

Share your story to inspire girls to embrace technology.

International Girls in ICT Day is 25 April. As the world comes together to encourage girls everywhere to consider careers in information and communication technology, we invite your stories about the positive impacts technology has had in your life.

This call for stories closed on Apr 30, 2019 at 11:59 PM GMT. If you have a story to share on this topic, go here.

By sharing our stories, we can inspire girls to embrace tech tools that can radically alter the course of their lives.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Have digital tools opened doors for you that would have otherwise been closed? Share a story about the positive impacts technology has had on your life.

  • Are you working to bring technology skills to girls and women in your community? Share a story about your challenges, your successes, and what motivates you to keep going.

  • If you are a woman or a girl involved in ICT fields, share your experience. What challenges have you faced? What accomplishments would you like to share with the world? 

  • Tell the stories of girls who are leading the way. Show the world what girls can do when they are given opportunities in tech fields.

Through our stories, we will celebrate important achievements for women and encourage girls everywhere to explore life-changing opportunities.
