'shadow girls' instil an interest in information and communication technologies (ICT)

'We have noticed that if we want to boost ICT business, it will be not enough for young men alone to become CEOs and researchers,' Ms Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for Information Society and Media told journalists at a press event.

The initiative started by Ms Reding, dubbed shadow girls involves matching women CEOs in IT companies or high-level national government policy makers with young girls, the aim being to instil in them an interest in information and communication technologies (ICT). The hope is that the interest will turn into a desire to become a researcher or a business leader. The girls get to follow their mentors over the course of one or several days to find out more about what it is like to work in the sector.
