The non-profit organization Oda-Nettverk is dedicated to creating more diversity in the Norwegian tech industry by promoting and supporting women's participation in the field. Through mentorship programs, workshops, and networking events, Women in Tech Norway aims to inspire and empower women to pursue careers in technology and break down the barriers that prevent them from entering the industry.
The project directly addresses SDG 5 by working towards gender equality in the tech sector. The organization recognizes that women are underrepresented in the field and face significant barriers in accessing opportunities and advancing their careers. By promoting gender diversity and inclusivity in technology, Women in Tech Norway is helping to create a more equal society where everyone has the opportunity to succeed regardless of gender.
"Girls Tech Fest" and is organized by Oda-Nettverk, a non-profit organization based in Norway. The event aims to encourage girls and young women to pursue careers in technology and science, which are fields that have traditionally been male-dominated.
The Girls Tech Fest brings together girls from all over Norway to participate in a range of interactive workshops and activities focused on technology, science, and innovation. Participants have the opportunity to learn about various topics such as programming, robotics, and artificial intelligence, as well as to engage with female role models who have succeeded in these fields.
Gender diversity is essential for innovation and creativity, and without it, the tech industry is missing out on a wealth of talent and perspective. Increasing the number of women in tech can also help to bridge the gender pay gap and promote more equitable opportunities for women in the workforce. Finally, women's representation in tech can help to challenge and change harmful gender stereotypes and biases in the industry, ultimately leading to a more inclusive and diverse sector.
The project addresses SDG 5 (Gender Equality) by promoting equal opportunities for girls and women to access education and career opportunities in fields that are traditionally male-dominated. It also contributes to SDG 4 (Quality Education) by providing girls with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with technology and science.
Through the Girls Tech Fest, Oda-Nettverk aims to inspire the next generation of female leaders and innovators in Norway, and to help close the gender gap in the tech industry. With these actions and goals, Oda-Nettverk shapes a strong part of a global society.
