The National Frequency Management Unit (NFMU) yesterday held an International Girls in ICT Day symposium under the theme “Expanding Horizons, Changing Attitudes” that was aimed at empowering and encouraging girls and young women to consider careers in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).Some of the girls gathered at the North Ruimveldt Secondary School during the ICT symposium.This event held at the North Ruimveldt Secondary School, targeted students from city schools, including David Rose, Freeburg, Caramel,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, Houston,Wholesale China Jerseys, North Georgetown, Dolphin and Brickdam Secondary Schools,Cheap Jerseys Store, Bishops’ High, Queen’s College and Central High.Ninth and 10th grade female students were provided an opportunity to become inspired about the ICT sector, by getting a first-hand look into the ICT institutions and listening to women role models speak on the issue.Traditionally, employment in the ICT sector, worldwide, is dominated by males.

Nothing is wrong with those fields, but let me tell you, I don’t know of any career that is as varied as the ICT ones,” Hinds told the students.Hinds reiterated that there are not many jobs that can compete with ICT; in fact the sector continues to provide the most jobs for young people, even as young as 15 years old.
