International Day for Girls in ICT 2022 - Virtual Event
Science, technology, and innovation are key drivers of our increasingly global and digital society. But less than 30% of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) professionals are women. Isn't it time we changed this equation?
PEAKS Academy in association with Prayaanais proud to organize this Virtual Event aimed at empowering girls and young women to break barriers in STEM education, to have more women in leadership roles in tech fields, and to be safe on the internet. Listen to some amazing speakers from across the globe who are working towards gender equality, the inclusion of girls, cyber safety, and girls' education.

The main goal of Girls in ICT is to cultivate the presence and digital skills of young women and girls [aged 12-24] in the career field of STEM, particularly ICT. The aim of the observance is to provide girls with the essential foundation of confidence, courage, and support which they often lack due to gender and societal stereotypes, in STEM education and careers. Access and Safety were selected as the 2022 thematic priority as part of the initial step for girls to be able to access the digital environment in a safe way. Safe Access to ICT and developing digital skills can help empower girls in education, career, business, financial management, and health care services.

BREAK BARRIERS IN STEM ED
The low participation and achievement rates of girls and women can negatively impact larger societal progress as STEM innovations have incredible potential to drive sustainable development.
WOMEN LEADERS IN TECH
We continue to see a lack of women represented in senior leadership roles on boards, as CEOs and in STEM careers. We need to dispel the myths that women cannot take on ‘tech-heavy’ jobs.
