Breaking the Barriers: Girls in ICT and STEM
The webinar, organized by Ecobank and Ecobank Foundation – GPE’s partner on the Girls’ Education Awareness Program – is about girls and young women who break the bias, deciding to study in less traditional sectors like Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM).
The event is intended to inspire young girls to take up career opportunities in fields perceived as non-traditional for women. It will coincide with the International Girls in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Day and aims to contribute to the empowerment of girls and young women, encouraging them towards opportunities in STEM fields.
Time: 08:00-09:30 ET / 12:00-13:30 GMT / 14:00-15:30 CET
The event will be available in both French and English.
It will also be livestreamed, and simultaneously streamed in selected Ecobank offices and branches in Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Ghana.
