Addressing the factors hindering women’s entry into IT

Addressing the factors hindering women’s entry into IT, the Association, together with organisations from Slovenia and Portugal, launched in May 2021 the project “Girls in the Digital World: Smart and Creative Credit24“, which aims to engage 15-18 girls in digital technologies (such as artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, Internet of Things, robotics) through their creative use in their everyday activities. Each day is structured around hands-on sessions making games or apps, Q&A with seasoned pros, and an exploration of some of the hottest new tech out today.

Technology unleashes creativity

The pilot training of the Unleash Your CreativITy With Technology distance learning programme will start in January next year. In this autumn, there will be an active preparation phase to select the youth workers and girls who want to participate in the training. There will be events and campaigns inviting young people to join the project activities. A total of 200 girls and 50 youth workers from Slovenia, Greece and Portugal will be able to test and evaluate the course.

According to statistics, only 9% of girls choose STEM studies after leaving school. What’s more, around 40% of school-age girls think that technology is not for them.
