ASTTBC Acknowledges International Day of the Girl: Re-Commits to Supporting BC Women in Technology

Informing young girls about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is a priority for ASTTBC and we are reminded of this commitment with this special day that recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. This day came about as a result of a Government of Canada resolution to the United Nations in December 2011. The first Day of the Girl was October 11, 2012.

The 2016 theme for 2016 is Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: What Counts for Girls.
