Bringing Inspiring Girls to Aragón
Continuum Security had the pleasure and honour of bringing the Inspiring Girls movement to Aragón. The launch was held at the Walqa Technologic Park at the Espacio 0.42 venue, a magnificent planetarium and an apt backdrop for girls who want to reach for the stars! We had inspiring women from the government, public and private sectors as well as entrepreneurs presenting their personal stories. We thank Marta Gastón, Director General of Finance, Industry and Work for Aragón; Soledad de la Puente Sánchez, Director of Labour for Aragón; Cristina de la Hera, General Director of Walqa Technology Park; Blanca Liso, star presenter at AragónTV and Patricia Heredia, founder of MiniVinci.
Moreover, residual sexism still applies to women and girls of all ages. They are subject to labels at the work place and in society. While this might be just background noise for women of a certain age, it is the background noise against which girls are being brought up. It therefore limits their dreams and aspirations. Recent surveys in the UK show that by the age of 6 years old, children start looking at jobs as female and male and by 13 they have already discarded some jobs based in gender stereotypes. The situation in many other countries (both developed and developing ones) is very similar. While Governments in every country need to continue being encouraged to take further actions to contribute to change the situation above, we believe that the real change will come from society itself, both men and women, willing to speak up and lead by example through initiatives such as Inspiring Girls International.” (www.inspiring-girls.com)
