By providing fully funded, individually tailored digital skills training that reflects current market needs, we have worked to equip women with a set of in-demand digital competencies and employability guidance, all to drive their career advancement and economic independence.In its pilot phase, the project has retrained +900 women across Europe as programmers, data analysts and other ICT roles that are vital to reach our Digital Decade goals.
The upcoming event entitled Women4IT: Shaping the future of digital marks the end of our four-year project. Together, we will look back at the project’s main achievements, good practices and lessons learnt, as well as hear first-hand from the Women4IT graduates about their experience and plans for a career in tech. We will also review how the EU currently performs in terms of fostering gender diversity in STEM and discuss the next steps in boosting the impact of initiatives like Women4IT.
