In the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Digital Transition, technology and coding have become one of the must-have skills. To this extent, the gender gap in the information technology sector is likely to widen. At a time when gender inequality is balancing day by day and the influence of women in technology is growing, 30 girls are coded each year to reduce gender inequality in the industry, create female software engineers, and empower girls and women in rural areas. A training program is being announced.
The “Code Writing Girls Program” initiated by B.Bolor-Erdene, Head of the Communications and Information Technology Department, was launched today / June 18, 2021 /. A total of 2,100 girls from all over Mongolia registered for the program, and 30 girls from 21 aimags and 9 districts were selected.
Over the next eight weeks, these 30 girls will gain the basic skills needed to become a web developer, master algorithms and coding, web and mobile applications, and create prototypes based on what they have learned.
