There's a shortage of young people - and in particular, girls - studying in STEM fields. Diverse and inclusive teams create better environments and better work, which is why we participate in Girls in ICT Day to raise awareness work for a better tomorrow.
We all have the responsibility to move the needle, to improve gender balance and reduce inequality. Imagine if every single one of us did just one thing to inspire more girls to enter the ICT field. How many more women would then shape the future?
Now is the time to join forces and carry out the mission of Girls in ICT. Take a moment and think about your ecosystem. Who are the girls that you can inspire to look into STEM-based careers?
It's time to ask important questions. Between now and the end of April, challenge yourself to join forces with us and inspire girls to dream about futures in STEM.
How to get involved:
Anyone can inspire girls and host a Girls Who Innovate workshop! Whether you're an Ericsson employee or not, let's inspire them one by one. Download the materials below as a base for conversations, presentations or seminars intended to educate girls about ICT and innovation.
Organize them in:
- Schools and universities
