Tekla Workshop & Dialogue

08 Mar 2021, 10.00 AM

To mark the International Women´s Day and promote a larger interest in technology among schoolgirls, the Embassy of Sweden, Riga TechGirls and Start IT invite you to a digital event on March 8, 10.00 – 12.00.

‘Tekla Workshop & Dialogue’ is a project addressing the challenge of underrepresentation of women in technology and ways of empowering girls and women by strengthening their roles and opportunities. The Tekla workshops will offer girls aged 11–15 the opportunity to learn about code and explore different tech gear in an environment where all roles are available to them. They get to meet female role models and their confidence and curiosity towards the world of technology can grow.

The project ‘Tekla Workshop & Dialogue’ is initiated and supported by Swedish institute and KTH and coordinates in Latvia by Riga TechGirls and Start IT.

During discussion om March 8, representatives from Ministry of Education in Latvia, school, education, and business institution representatives will evaluate the current experience with girl’s interest in tech, as well as discuss opportunities to inspire development of more enthusiastic TechGirls.

Please find a program attached.

Working language of discussion – Latvian.
