Background and objectives
The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is looking for young female volunteers studying STEM or pursuing Tech-related careers to be an interviewer for the Talking Tech: Girls and Women in ICT series. The volunteer would interview women in technology that are leaders and/or further on in their careers on Zoom. Talking Tech: Girls and Women in ICT is a year-long series of online interviews by girls and young women in technology in conversation with women in technology that are leaders and/or further on in their careers, organized by the ITU, UN ICC, the Office of the Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth. Each interview/conversation is between a girl or young woman in tech and a woman in tech further in her career and should generally not last more than 30 minutes. The interviews are recorded on Zoom (not live), and will be edited and posted to the EQUALS YouTube channel.
Outreach and advocacy
Other communications related experience
The objectives of this series include to interest and inspire girls and younger women with information about a range of ICT careers that can be had and the diverse paths into them, bring before a broader audience more role model women in tech and share information about their career journeys and work, collect advice from women in tech on how to successfully navigate a career in tech, offer more diverse examples of how ICT is being used to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and other UN goals, showcase initiatives that are working with girls and/or women to support them in ICT studies or ICT careers, build relationships between girls/young women and women in tech, provide girls/young women in tech with a leadership opportunity to represent and promote a girls in tech organization with which they are involved and/or tell some of their own journey in tech. The volunteer's contribution will help support the promotion of female leaders in tech as well as different girls in tech organizations. The volunteer's contribution will also help inspire girls considering pursuing careers in tech.
Volunteers: 25 needed
1-5 hours per week / 2 weeks
We aim for the interviews to be conversations, which means that young interviewers will be asked questions in return. We thus aim to shed the light on the experiences of our younger participants! The interviews are conducted in English or other languages (with subtitles) as long as the girl / young woman and woman in tech speak the same language. This opportunity is non-discriminatory and inclusive.
