Our project aims at "Breaking the Digital Ceiling". 

When women are absent from leadership roles, this results in a lower diversity of opinions, which affects the quality of decision-making throughout the sector. While there is much research yet to be done, it is clear that women must be championed to overcome gendered obstacles in SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY careers as well as other sectors and find paths to promotion.

Only then can we have confidence in our efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and truly ensure that no one is left behind.

However, on average, women represent less than 35% of the ICT workforce, even dropping as low as 2% in some sub-sectors.

I this project, we aim at welcoming women to FUTURE ICT workforce, one of which is simulation technology; exchanging good practices on training and motivating them towards the way their being a leader and and role model and finally a decision maker in the field.
