Information Technologies are everywhere: They make our lives richer and more comfortable. They connect people worldwide – anywhere, anytime. They even help save lives! However, not enough people in Europe are choosing careers in Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) – especially not enough women.
A career in the ICT sector has no limits anymore. Your job can range from traditional engineering or programming to designing new types of mobile phones or saving the environment. Information and Communications Technologies are important to every aspect of our lives.
The European Commission decided to do something about the lack of women in IT careers. Together with several leading technology companies – the Commission organised a series of “shadowing days” to show young women that technology is not at all “strictly for geeks!”.
Get involved and experience your own shadowing day.
You can all do IT!
