Girls In ICT

Play Video

Here at Exa, we are committed to proactively promoting women’s equality within our business and encouraging more females into tech-related careers. On April 28, 2022 we are supporting Girls in ICT Day which encourages individuals and organisations to empower young women so they become drivers of innovation and digital transformation. 

What is Girls In ICT Day?

Launched by the International Telecommunication Union, International Girls in ICT Day highlights the challenges young women face in the digital environment and how women are still underrepresented in STEM professions, ICT sectors and Technology leadership roles. The theme of this year’s awareness day is “Access and Safety” which promotes safe and reliable access to the internet and digital tools for girls and young women.

Houlin Zhou, ITU Secretary-General, said: “International Girls in ICT Day encourages girls and young women to follow their dreams and ambitions to pursue careers in the tech sector. Girls’ fresh and creative minds, confidence along with cutting edge technology have the potential to change the world and set better futures for all.” (watch the video here: https://www.itu.int/women-and-girls/girls-in-ict/role-models-and-inspiration/)

How are Exa spreading awareness?

We’ve interviewed Samia from our Technical Support Team to find out more about the challenges she faces as a woman in her role day to day and how she overcomes them. She also discusses her future career plans, who inspires her and provides valuable advice to women looking to pursue a career in tech. 

Last month we supported International Women’s Day which raises awareness about women’s equality and celebrates women’s achievements. We interviewed influential women in our management team to find out about what inspires them, their careers and support they’ve received and their advice to women moving up into management roles.

Our work with The Exa Foundation and organisations, such as Ahead Partnership, enable us to promote careers in tech to younger people by involving them in digital skills activities. We aim to continue to inspire young people, especially girls to consider careers in the tech industry and ultimately support women in overcoming and stamping out the barriers and boundaries within our sector.
