Get Involved with Girlsday
Based on the “Take our daughters and sons to work” initiative launched in 1993 in the United States, Girlsday has been organized in several European countries for more than 10 years to promote girls’ interest in STEM careers. Germany was the first country to organize Girlsday in Europe, followed by (among others) the Netherlands, Hungary, Denmark and Norway. VHTO has organized Girlsday in the Netherlands annually since 2010.
During Girlsday, technical companies, (non-)governmental organizations, and research institutes open their doors for 10-15 year old girls, in order to awaken/increase their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The activities that take place during Girlsday are diverse, but can consist of (a combination of) a tour, hands-on activities/workshops, a quiz, and of course an encounter with female technical professionals. The central goal is to provide girls with a better/more comprehensive image of what it’s like to work in STEM, to show that women can also be successful in STEM professions, and that it can be a lot of fun!
