Empowering girls in the technology sector

Stelpur, stál og tækni held at RU



The International Girls in ICT Day was held at Reykjavik University last week with 1.200 participants. Several workshops related to the technology sector were held at RU and over 20 companies greeted groups of girls showing them around the workplace. Both intended to empower them to look into possible studies and work in the field. 


The event was first held in 2014 and has grown ever since. It is Marels who sponsors the event. Through the years RU has established great collaboration with prominent companies in the technology sector that have welcomed groups of students and introduced them to possibilities in the field. The event has been hugely popular among teachers, students, company representatives, and RU staff.

We thank all who participated in this great day and look forward to next year!
