The Australian National University (ANU) is proud to celebrate International Girls in ICT Day 2021 (#GirlsinICT).
If she can see it, she can be it
While girls across the world tend to outperform boys in reading and writing skills, they continue to be under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
International Girls in ICT Day is held annually on 22 April, celebrated by the United Nations’ International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
It aims to inspire a global movement to increase the representation of girls and women in technology. This year marks the 10 year anniversary, with the 2021 theme of connected girls, creating brighter futures.
To celebrate International Girls in ICT Day, we’re showcasing just a few of the outstanding women in our ANU community who study information and communication technologies and related fields.
