Girls and IT? But sure!
help allliance has recently started supporting a new employee project in Hamburg: Together with the moinschool initiative of the moinworld association, the Lufthansa Group’s aid organization wants to help overcome socially internalized prejudices when choosing a career and turn girls into active creators of the digital future. Dr. Jana Bohnstengel, consultant at Lufthansa Industry Solutions, is in charge of the help alliance project in the Hanseatic city.
Women are underrepresented at all levels in the digital sector in Germany. Although the digital economy is growing rapidly and creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs every year, the proportion of women in this important sector is decreasing, according to the European Commission. The active participation of women in IT could give new impetus to the economy.
