The event will be held boht online and in Brussels and will consist of a morning full of keynote speeches, expert panels, showcases, and fireside chats with project participants.
Women4IT was one of the finalist practices of our VI Call for Good Practices under the inclusive employment category. Their project aims at tackling women underrepresentation in STEM fields. The project has equiped women with a set of in-demand digital competencies and employability guidance, all to drive their career advancement and economic independence. In its pilot phase, the project has retrained +900 women across Europe as programmers, data analysts and other ICT roles that are vital to reach our Digital Decade goals.
The upcoming event marks the end of their project. In the event they will look back at the project’s main achievements, good practices and lessons learnt, as well as hear first-hand from the Women4IT graduates about their experience and plans for a career in tech. They will also review how the EU currently performs in terms of fostering gender diversity in STEM and discuss the next steps in boosting the impact of initiatives like Women4IT.
