On April 27, 2023, the Girls' Day took place as an in-person event for the first time since the pandemic. The HCC Research Group adapted last year's workshop concept, which we had to deploy in a nonverbal virtual format (you can read our event report here), as an in-person, hands-on format.
The Girls' Day is a nationwide project for career and study orientation for girls. On this annual day of action, schoolgirls learn about professions or fields of study in which the proportion of women is less than 40 percent. Companies, businesses, and universities throughout Germany open their doors to girls on Girls' Day to introduce them to careers and courses of study in IT, crafts, science, and technology.
