Girls-in-ICT 2018 Participants Visit NCA
Selected participants of the 2018 National Girls-In-ICT Initiative on Thursday, 4th October, 2018, paid a working visit to the National Communications Authority (NCA) in Accra. This was part of an Open Day activity instituted by the Ministry of Communications (MoC) to provide an opportunity for the selected girls to gain knowledge, understand and appreciate the role of the Authority in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry.
The Girls-In-ICT event was hosted by the Director General of the NCA, Mr. Joe Anokye, and two of his Deputy Directors General, Mr. Henry Kanor and Ms. Olivia Okailey Quartey. In attendance were the Commissioner for the Public Services Commission, Mrs. Janet Fofie, and some Female Management Staff of the NCA.
Giving his welcome remarks, Mr. Joe Anokye said he was elated to see such young girls show interest in ICT. He added that the world market is now being driven by technology and innovation and noted that ICT related companies have now taken over the world which therefore underscores the viability of ICT goals in the job market. Mr. Anokye urged the girls not to think that ICT is for only men but take the initiative seriously and tap into the opportunities it presents. Bringing his remarks to a close, he assured them that the NCA will do its best to support Girls-In-ICT and ICT related initiatives as a whole.
