International Girls in ICT DayCisco invited 30 female students from Rochester City School District to be part of our Girls Power Tech Global Mentoring Initiative. SWW students were part of the group. This special learning opportunity was hosted by Cisco at offices around the world in partnership with International Girls in ICT Day, an annual initiative organized by the United Nation’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
This day of learning introduced the girls to exciting opportunities in the information and communications technology (ICT) field. During this event, students were mentored by Cisco employees, heard from innovative women working in IT and engineering, and learned about educational and career opportunities in the technology field. They had the opportunity to learn about Cisco and experienced their transformative communication and collaboration technologies first hand.
