Tech and coding workshops shine in Latin America

Participants in 2021 Girls in ICT tech and coding workshops in the Dominican Republic

The “Centros Tecnológicos Comunitarios” (CTC) and Americas Girls Can Code (AGCC) held the second virtual edition of Girls in ICT Day with the presence of Raquel Arbaje, First Lady of the Dominican Republic. A group of young women and teenage girls from 12 Latin American countries participated in technology and coding workshops. The main objective of the initiative, which was coordinated by EQUALS co-founding partner International Telecommunication Union (ITU), was to introduce teenage girls to the world of programming and the many opportunities it offers so that they can subsequently enter the labor market.
