Girls engage with a TelOne female Engineer during the Girls in ICT celebrations in Figtree
TelOne joined the rest of Zimbabwe in commemorating Girls in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Day which was held in Figtree on the 1st of June 2017. The day, observed annually, celebrates the strides made by females in the development of ICT sector. Our own female engineer Privilege Nyaruwanga and other women in ICT in the telecoms sector engaged with thousands of young girls from Matabeleland South Province to motivate the young girls to choose a career path that is driven by technology.
Girls in ICT day is celebrated in over 150 countries globally including Zimbabwe and is aimed at creating an environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to take up careers in the growing field of ICT. The ICT sector provides huge opportunities that can accelerate the presence of women in a lot of decision making forums. As TelOne we continue to celebrate our own girls in ICT who help keep us going with their hard work and innovation.
