On April 27th, 2018, young women from all over Kosovo came together to celebrate the international Girls in ICT Day in Prishtina. The event is held annually all over the world to empower and encourage girls and young women to consider education and careers in the field of information and communication technology.
The girls acquired new skills at five different workshops led by tech institutions and ICT companies. They also learned from inspirational presentations held by international and local leaders in the ICT field. The event concluded with a job fair where more than twenty Kosovo ICT companies and organizations met with the girls and some had job and internship opportunities on offer for those interested in careers in ICT.
EMPOWER Private Sector in partnership with Sida – Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency has supported the event for the third year running.
