The program aims to fill the digital gender gap, promote equal opportunities for girls and boys in education and access to technology, and foster gender equality in the marketplace, workplace, and community. The IT Girls Initiative is built around three pillars, representing separate yet complementary sets of interventions, leading to the achievement of the objectives:
• High-quality digital skills provided to girls and women
• Vocational training, employment and workplace standards in the area of human resource management
• Advocacy and confidence-building for women and girls
The target groups are young girls aged 13-18, students and young professionals in the field of ICT, as well as successful women with experience in this industry.
