Fujitsu - Girls in ICT Insight Event
To celebrate International Girls in ICT Day, this Insight Event will focus on the technology and wider STEM opportunities at Fujitsu. You’ll discover the benefits of pursuing ICT and hear inspirational stories from the professionals who did it first. With an added emphasis on well-being, you’ll learn about the role that wellness plays at Fujitsu, plus how to practice it yourself!
International Girls in ICT Day is an annual global initiative that takes place, this year, on the 27th April. It aims to encourage young women and girls to pursue careers and studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), particularly ICT.
You’ll learn about the importance of ICT at Fujitsu and the abundance of roles ICT plays a part in. You’ll get to work your way through written, interactive and video content and meet the tech professionals themselves in a series of live webinars. But, that’s not all! There’ll also be the opportunity to participate in an activity if you wish!
