Celebrating Girls in ICT Day

Every girl holds the power to change the world

How will you show your courage?

In April, we will celebrate the 2014 International Girls in ICT Day with activities around the world to increase the awareness regarding the importance of encouraging more girls and young women to join the information and communication technology (ICT) sector and pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. Join us in empowering girls in your life to become future creators of technology, and join the conversation @intelinvolved.

Educate a girl. Change the world.

Girl Rising is a global action campaign for girls' education. It started with a groundbreaking, inspirational film. Now it’s a movement to lift barriers to girls' education, to drive change and motivate leaders to take action. Bring Girl Rising to your community. Buy the DVD and organize a screening, a panel session, a poetry slam -- whatever moves you to action. What counts is that we all do something. Purchase your copy on iTunes, Amazon and girlrising.com.

Intel is a founding strategic partner of the Girl Rising campaign as well as supporter of the digital distribution of the film.
