Comment Neelie
excerpt from: ICT and Women
[...] The fact is, there are many passionate, grassroots initiatives out there. Things like Coderdojo for children. Our Digital Champion in Finland, Linda Liukas, has had a lot of success with the RailsGirls project. And in America, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and others launched, to get more women and men into programming. We should shine a light on them.

Lsst-minute insert into the text is here - woohoo! "From stakeholder discussions on getting more girls and women digital, we found that scaling and replicating grass-roots initiatives that work needs to be a focus at the European level. For example, promoting initiatives like Digital Muse and the newly-launched InQube (a female digital accelerator network for entrepreneurs in Europe), we can succeed at building an empowered digital workforce, with girls and women in a central role. This will help to make and keep Europe competitive on a global level." Thank you, Neelie!
