The Digicel Foundation, through its Girls Power Tech event aims to inspire girls and young women to pursue or consider careers in ICT. For the past three years the Foundation has collaoborated with CISCO, Digicel Business, Shell Trinidad and Tobago Ltd, and Loop News TT for this tech-driven event.
The event usually includes Tech demonstration booths displaying new technology and sharing how ICT is transforming our world, a slate of influential female speakers, who are leaders in the industry. The aim is to expose girls and young women to a network of females who are pioneers in their field and breaking the glass ceiling to make room for new innovators. The event culminates with a Hackathon, giving the young audience the opportunity to integrate new-tech in their problem solving, further stimulating their creative thinking skills.
