Previously, she said, African and Asian nations joined the commemoration, above all, because only boys are focused on the technological sector. Cuba is not the case, said the specialist, it has an educational system that allows boys and girls at an early age, receive computer classes in primary school and continued through to the other educational levels.
However, Cuba joined the celebration this year because although the composition between sexes in Information and Telecommunications is similar, in some activities, women are still shy from what the country needs, she said.
Among them are related with computer programming, network administration and the development of software.
The Cuban women have carried out important contributions to the country’s technological development, she said, demonstrating that they are capable in working in other specialties within the sector where men continue to dominate said Valdes.
