Bratislava, Kosice April 27, 2017: On Thursday April 27, 2017 Slovakia joins again the worldwide initiative Girl´s Day to support women in IT. Women day in IT takes place in more than 16 countries all around the world. Slovakia joined this initiative for the first time in 2014. Girl´s Day was also supported by president of Slovak Republic Andrej Kiska for the third time. Kosice IT Valley also supports it significantly this year.
“In this region around 30% of women work in various positions which is quite a high number for this sector. Globally and statistically we are somewhere around 20%. If we talk about purely IT positions such as programmer, administrator and the like, then we are somewhere around 14%”, therefore according to Pavol Mirossay, executive director of Kosice IT Valley, it is important to make awareness among young girls so that IT is not foreign to them.
