Our past events…

2018

On March 14th, 2018, we teamed up with Nokia Global Careers to welcome 175 local girls aged 11 - 15 at the Nokia Executive Experience Center in Espoo, Finland. This was our first stop in Finland with Nokia, as we did two more events in Tampere and Oulu just a few days after. Along with 50 incredible volunteers we were thrilled to see the girls experience DNA extractions, drones driving, VR and so much more.

2017

In March 2017 we had our first event ever in Espoo at the Nokia Executive Experience Center! This was one of three Finnish events that we were able to make happen thanks to Nokia, the two other being in Tampere and in Oulu. We inspired over 400 girls and all 3 cities are preparing for their 2nd annual g4g Day in 2018. Here’s to a successful collaboration!
