Now the growth in employment of women is stronger than that of men in almost all scientific and technical professions.
More than 97 percent of the girls assess Girls'Day as 'good' or 'very good'.
62 percent got to know professions on Girls'Day in which they are interested.
The 16th Girls'Day in April 2016 was a great success: Nearly 9,600 institutions offered about 100,000 places for female students.
The next Girls'Day will be held on April 27th, 2017.
Girls'Day – 'Future Prospects for Girls' is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
In recent years there has been a significant increase in female professionals in technical fields.
Girls'Day encourages the surroundings of the young women – i.e.
families, school, media and employers – to participate in the campaign and change their common attitudes towards vocational orientation.
Information material, an all-embracing interactive website and an individual advisory service provide support for all target groups. Due to the nationwide focus and the uniform date, Girls'Day concentrates regional limited individual initiatives and achieves a unique broad effect.
It is considered the largest career orientation project for female students.
