GIRLS IN IT INITIATIVE
ICT can break down gender discrimination barriers and provide girls with equal opportunities for growth and development. This is why UNITeS Cisco Networking Academy launched a Girls initiative in 2011. The initiative supports the Millennium Development Goals of United Nations [Gender Equality & Empowering Women) by providing a platform for girls to develop ICT. In the end the project aims to encourage more women and girls to pursue careers in ICT.
