Girls in Tech Gibraltar have recently been nominated for the Gibraltar Sustainability Awards: Technology, and this event aims to positively impact the accessibility, presence and support for women in STEM fields. Be sure to join us for this unmissable event!

The Hon. Samantha Jane Sacramento, Minister for Equality, commented: “The Ministry of Equality has formed a very positive relationship with Girls In Tech Gibraltar since its launch in 2017. I have personally been very keen to support this organisation given its commitment to engage with and support women in technology. Girls in Tech aims to increase diversity and inclusion in the world of tech and this is an endeavour which I fully endorse given the existing under-representation of women in this sector. Events like Women in Tech Stories present positive role models for our community, especially for our young women, and remind them that the sky is truly the limit when it comes to professional opportunities even in currently male-dominated fields. I would like to congratulate Girls in Tech for their continued efforts to effect positive change and they know that they can count on my continued support”.
