International Women’s Day 2022: Call for Associate Organisations

Megan ChickEvent, News, News and Events

SAVE THE DATE! ITWales’ 22nd annual International Women’s Day event will be held on Tuesday 8th March 2022.

The annual ITWales International Women’s Day Celebration provides an insight into the diverse range of business and career opportunities for women in the 21st Century. It offers a platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and best practice for women, particularly those working within science and technology.

The theme for this year’s event is For the Girls. The event will showcase the support available for young females hoping to work in the STEM sectors and the incredible work being done to encourage the next generation of scientists, focusing on our GiST (Girls into Science and Technology) programme.

We are actively seeking local and national projects to become associate organisations for our International Women’s Day 2022 event. Do you know of any charities, businesses or projects that work to encourage girls in Wales to consider studying and working in STEM?

Associate organisations will have a 5 minute speaker slot at the event to discuss the hard work of the project in encouraging girls into STEM, as well as a section in the event’s booklet and promotion throughout the campaign, at no cost thanks to funding support from the Welsh Government.

The prestigious event sees politicians, celebrities and international CEOs in attendance, and we in previous years, we have had the joy of welcoming former Welsh Government Education Minister Kirsty Williams, Chair of the Institute of Coding Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, Swansea University Vice Chancellor Paul Boyle and Welsh Government Minister for Finance and Local Government, Rebecca Evans MS.

If you are interested in becoming an associate members or for more information, get in touch via comms@technocamps.com.
