CTU Girls in ICT Day 2022
Registration opening soon.
Celebrated on the fourth Thursday of April every year, under the auspices of the United Nations’ International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Girls in ICT Day highlights the need to promote technology career opportunities for girls and women in the ICT sector.
The Day serves to inspire both government and the private sector to find ways to equip girls and young women with the skills they need to become ICT professionals.
Under this year’s theme, Access and Safety, the ITU, in consultation with youth stakeholders, has identified that for girls and young women to thrive in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, they need safe and reliable access to the internet and digital tools.
This year, the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU) with the support of Restore A Sense of I Can, will host the CTU Girls in ICT Day 2022.
The Day will feature presentations on access and safety, inspirational / motivational chats, and interactive game and dance sessions. There are prizes to be won.
