Girls’Day to return to inovex Karlsruhe for 2019
Schoolgirls from the 5th class and above to receive insights into the world of IT
(Karlsruhe, 29.01.2019) On March 28th 2019, IT service provider inovex will open its doors to female pupils from the fifth class and above who are interested in learning more about the IT industry.
Girls’Day at inovex
Girls’Day is a national initiative in which companies, factories and universities all over Germany open their doors to female pupils of the fifth class and above who want to learn more about IT, trades, natural sciences and technology – areas in which women are, unfortunately, still underrepresented.
inovex plans to welcome 16 girls to its premises that day. There are still a few places available, for which girls wishing to attend can register via the Girls'Day website.
“We are delighted to be able to support the Girls’Day initiative again this year,” says Christian Meder, Chief Technology Officer at inovex. “Girls still tend to be drastically underrepresented in school IT classes. Here at inovex, we are fortunate to employ a large number of female IT specialists who are very passionate about their jobs, and we want to share our enthusiasm for IT with the girls attending Girls’Day.”
The inovex event will focus on practical experiences. The Girls’Day attendees will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Pepper the robot and its functions – and will even be able to program it with tasks to perform. As always, the girls will also learn about a variety of different IT-related careers and courses of study.
Girls’Day is the world’s largest career initiative for female students. Since its inaugural event in 2001, approximately 1.9 million girls have participated. In 2018, around 100,000 girls explored options in technology and the natural sciences, and more than 10,000 opportunities were offered by companies and organisations on the Girls’Day website.
