Make a difference | ICT GISP International Girls in ICT Day events  | 27/4/2023

The International Girls in ICT Day is observed across the globe on the fourth Thursday in April to inspire the next generation of females to prosper in STEM careers. The day highlights the need for more females in the ICT sector, currently sitting at 31% participation. The observance of the International Girls in ICT Day is organised by the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency for ICTs. Find out more here

The ICT GISP is supporting our schools to celebrate this day by connecting with local emerging and established female tech and business leaders, so that they can promote careers in STEM through mentoring students or participating as a keynote speaker or panel discussion participant. Check out the action in 2022.

Some schools require a Blue Card for visitors. To register for a Blue Card, go to the Queensland Government's Blue Card Services website.
