The International Girls in ICT Day was established at the level of the United Nations and is celebrated every fourth Thursday in April. Since 2001, when “Girls’ Day” was celebrated for the first time in Europe (Germany), more than a million girls have participated in this event.

The Girls in ICT Day aims to empower girls when choosing future professions, not to succumb to stereotypes, but to be guided by personal interests and talents.

The Association of Business Women in Serbia organized Girls’ Day for the first time on April 28, 2011.

In the past 13 years of celebrating The Girls in ICT Day, more than 10,000 girls have passed through the project of ABW Serbia, and the results show the interest of girls to recognize entrepreneurship as a possible future place of employment through this type of real meetings with entrepreneurs.

After the evaluation, 95% of the surveyed girls declared that they would like to be like the women they met that day, and half of them wrote that they would like to be directors like the entrepreneurs whose companies they visited.

As part of The Girls in ICT Day, the following are organized:


  • Competition for the best video work “Capture the idea” in which girls from all registered schools participate
  • Visits to companies – In the week marking The International Girls in ICT Day, group visits of girls are organized to companies that deal with information and communication technologies, companies in sectors where women are less represented, those whose owners are women, as well as members of ABW Serbia. Through company tours, meetings and conversations with entrepreneurs, company owners and managers, the girls see different possibilities when choosing a future profession, avoiding gender stereotypes.
  • Closing ceremony – Awards for the best video works.
