International Day "Girls in ICT" (28/04)

Since 2011, every fourth Thursday of April, International Girls in ICT Day has been celebrated every year.

This holiday was initiated by the ITU - the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which is a UN specialized agency in the field of information and communication technologies.

The goal of the organizers of the holiday was to draw attention to the problems of gender equality in the field of ICT (information and communication technologies). ITU representatives drew attention to the fact that girls and women, having certain psychological gender characteristics, are able, to no lesser extent than men, to achieve success in such an advanced and demanded area in the modern world as information and communication technologies, thus destroying certain gender stereotypes.
