About Girls' Day

During Girls' Day, beta, technical, IT companies and technical or IT departments of companies open their doors to girls aged 10 to 15 years throughout the Netherlands. The girls can participate in interesting activities, meet female employees and learn more about STEM activities. In short, Girls' Day lets girls experience the undiscovered world of science, technology and IT up close!


Girls' Day is intended to introduce and enthuse girls between the ages of 10 and 15 about science, technology and IT. It is important that girls get a broad and realistic picture of science, technology and IT companies and the associated professions and become acquainted with their female employees. Recently, it has become more clear than ever how important science, technology & IT are for society. For example, lab technologists are working on the development of vaccines, technicians are devising ergonomic solutions for home workplaces, and IT professionals are championing secure video connections. This is a great opportunity to enthuse girls for science, technology and IT!

Why participate

Much female STEM and ICT talent is lost, often because girls are unfamiliar with STEM, technical and ICT professions and education. Visiting a company can help broaden girls' view of science, technology and ICT and influence their career choices. Participating companies have noticed that the involvement and willingness of (female) employees to commit themselves to the future generation is high. The companies experience it as positive to maintain contact with schools in the area.
