Sure most of you have heard something of the “Girl’s Day”. It takes place in Germany and Austria once a year. This day should motivate girls and young women to take their chance in technical and scientific jobs. Furthermore the typical stereo types will be cleared up.
It was a pleasure for the TecAlliance to invite girls and young women to have a look behind the scenes of the different IT professions. It wasn’t the first time for our office in Weikersheim, but this year the doors were also opened in Cologne and Munich. But not only the TecAlliance was looking forward to the event. Already two weeks before the “Girl’s Day” two of the three workshops has been booked out.
But now, something about the agenda of the day: After a little introduction into the TecAlliance world and a small tour through the offices the day started right away under the slogan #girlsdaypower. The first one of the TecAlliance trainees explained the hardware components to the girls, .who could get the basic knowledge about it. They had lunch, after an introduction to the basics of C#. Immediately after lunch the girls learned how they can create small websites with HTML. The girls were free in their creativity and they could see that application developer are creative, too. Even new business ideas started growing and we’re looking forward to see, what we earn from them in a few years.
The girls told us, that they didn’t expect this much creativity within the IT industry and with that, they didn’t expect there a lot of females, too. They’re happy that the TecAlliance , as an agile IT company, enables the “Girl’s Days” and the training of females in IT relevant ‑jobs. After programming, our guests got a small introduction in the topics network and internet. Last point on the agenda was answering the questions of the girls, as well as giving us feedback for the day.
The feedback was positive: The girls said, that they enjoyed their time and now they now have a better understanding of the TecAlliance and the jobs in the company. They didn’t expect that they would have one of the most diversified job as a computer scientist, because they’re needed in almost every company and industry and with that future trainees have a wide range of possibilities.
Last but not least we want to say, that we also enjoyed the time a lot and we’re looking forward to the next year!
