In 2022, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl Child (IDG), as declared by the United Nations‘ Resolution 66/170, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges they face around the world.

Yet, girls from everywhere continue to encounter hindrances to their education, and their physical and mental wellness. COVID-19 has worsened existing burdens on girls around the world and worn away important gains made over the last decade.

La Fondation Dassault Systèmes is actively committed to creating vocations for science and technology, and supports projects that encourage young girls from all backgrounds and cultures in the world, to reach their full potential in STEM careers. We believe that girls are ready for a future that embraces their potential.

The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.

According to the roadmap embodied by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment is integral to each of the goals.
