The ITU “Girls in ICT Day” is held annually on the fourth Thursday in April and this year it was held on the 28th of April. Just like the other countries that have hosted this event, Sri Lanka too, hosted it eventfully. In Sri Lanka, the tendency to pursue ICT as a career is far less in the minds of girls than boys. However, there have been a few success stories where women have excelled in pursuing ICT careers and TRC decided to bring them forward on this day to enlighten the minds of the girls who have chosen ICT as a stream for their G.C.E Advanced Level Examination, which is the primary qualification for their career. Before the program began, during registration we interviewed a few invitees, teachers and students at random about their current experience on ICT and after the event they were interviewed again on whether this event has helped them in dispelling any doubts or fears they had about ICT when they first entered the hall.
