What do you think we should do to get more women and girls into the IT sector and how would you encourage women in the sector to stay?

On 25 April 2013 the European Commission (DG CONNECT) will host a conference "Girls in ICT Day" on women and girls in ICT.  This year the European Commission, European Parliament and the International Telecommunication Union are joining forces to ensure the maximum visibility for advancing the cause of getting more girls and women into technology, in particular ICT jobs. The purpose of the day is to identify workable solutions at the European and global level that would address the issue of the female leaking pipeline in ICT training and careers.

The event has a global, European and local dimension. It starts with a hands-on local component (IT workshops for 15-18 year old pupils), and culminates in a high-level political debate (at the EP hearing – open to general public as well as webstreamed) discussing the European-level agenda for advancing the cause of Women in ICT.  

The parliamentary hearing will have two angles to it: 1. professional women in ICT careers and 2. ICT skills for ICT jobs.

GIRL GEEKS:
If any of the Girl Geek Dinner groups in Europe are planning anything on the 25th April then it is worth letting me know on sarah@girlgeekdinners.com so that we can let their events can be highlighted as part of this. 

I think we should all try to get involved in the discussions online that are part of this so that there is a really positive buzz and support for getting more Women & Girls into ICT.

What do people think of running hangouts around topics on a regular basis?  If we did this what topics would you like to hang out and talk about?  Who would you like to see speak at a hangout?

That's a good idea. We should do one and see everyone's interest level and then go from there on planning. Maybe we could do like an ice breaker and share on a topic
