ITs4Women is a collaborative project, funded under the Erasmus Plus Programme and involves partners from five countries. Stichting Business Development Friesland (BDF) (Netherlands) is the lead partner for the ITs4Women project and the other project partners include EOLAS S.L.  (Spain); Laptify B.V. (Netherlands); Babele Create Together (Romania); Stiftelsen Dalarna Science Park (DSP) (Sweden) and Inishowen Development Partnership (IDP) (Ireland). 

ITs4Women aims is to improve the position and perception of women today by highlighting the importance of digital skills, opportunities and routes into employment in the ICT sector. At EU level, the number of women with digital skills and those in ICT sector is much lower than the number of men. This results in social disparities and potential discrimination. IDP along with project partners from across Europe want to fix this!

The project kicked off in November 2020 and IDP is leading on the research phase of the project. This has involved combining existing data and research with good practices. This will be used within the project to guide partners towards hands-on recommendations and tools to promote IT and digital skills amongst women and girls. It will inform the strategies needed to tackle the gender gap in IT and to offer women more equal opportunities in the IT world. Check out the Research Here and the ITs4Women Project Here
