FIT teamed up with IBM Dublin to create the perfect Tech Taster day for females nationwide. Hosted at IBM’s state-of-the-art Mulhuddart Campus, the aim of the day was to introduce participants to the world of tech, meet females in tech roles and understand exactly what a tech career looks like first-hand! While the primary objective of the event was to encourage female tech enthusiasts to consider a career in the sector, all genders were welcome to attend.
Greatly inspired by the findings & recommendations of a 2018 iWish Survey, FIT & IBM learned that inviting females to attend STEM events greatly enabled and encouraged the emerging stem girl.
When asked if they would ever consider a career in tech after the event, an overwhelming 100 % of survey respondents said YES.
