eBusiness Life holds summit on ‘Girls in ICT Day’ tomorrow
The need for stakeholders to encourage young girls to be part of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) revolution currently going on globally has been described as paramount in the bid to ensure a wider spread of digital literacy in the country.
Convener of the eBusiness Life International Girls in ICT Day Celebration, Mrs. Ufuoma Emuophedaro, gave this charge at a pre-event briefing in Lagos.
The event, which will hold tomorrow, in Lagos, is a global event initiated by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to encourage young girls and women to pursue careers in ICT.
According to Emuophedaro, studies show that there are not enough women choosing careers in ICT, hence the need to expand the local technology talent pool to include more women with ICT skills can help fill this gap.
