International Day of the Girl Series
October 4th – 11th

The International Day of the Girl was established by the United Nations in 2012 and is recognized as a day to acknowledge girls and their rights, education, and opportunities. Let’s seize the opportunity to reimagine a better world inspired by girls – energized and recognized, counted and invested in.

Skills Ontario is offering a series of free online events to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. We expanded beyond the official date of October 11th, 2021 to offer various opportunities for girls and their parents/guardians and family members to participate in! Skills Ontario will be celebrating through a three-part series:

1. A week of at-home challenges to try out the skilled trades and technologies for chances to win prizes!
2. A virtual hands-on workshop kids can do with their family to learn new skills!
3. A For Girls, By Girls! virtual conference, where viewers can hear from girls and learn about the
skilled trades and technologies!
