Young Females Encouraged to Undertake IT Apprenticeships in Support of International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day is a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements, from the political to the social, while calling for gender equality. It has been observed since the early 1900s and is now an annual occasion of celebration, recognised each year on 8th March.
As part of our continuing campaign to encourage, support and inspire more females to take up exciting new opportunities in IT, 3aaa believe that by having a diverse workforce, we can encourage creativity and foster innovation. We’re passionate about opening up opportunities to young females and aim to raise aspirations, celebrate achievement and renew efforts to break down gender barriers.
Many young females are reluctant to start an Apprenticeship as they perceive this employment route as being extremely male orientated, however this mind-set is changing more every day. By continuing to spread the word about Apprenticeships at 3aaa, and how it can be the right choice for females wanting to kick start their career in IT, we aim to prove that the IT industry is not just for males. You can see Georgia Smith’s Apprenticeship journey below, our Apprenticeship Ambassador from Worcester:
Themed this year around “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”, International Women’s Day will be celebrating women’s rights in more than 40 countries, encouraging people to #PledgeForParity, with people of influence from around the world pledging to take concrete action. It will look at how to ensure the 2030 Agenda, which positions women’s empowerment as at the centre of global sustainability plans, can be concretely achieved over the coming years. With individuals pledging to move from talk to purposeful action, and with men and women joining forces, women will grow to realise the limitless potential they can offer economies the world over.
