Open House Day held at Jenex
International Girls In ICT Day is internationally celebrated on the 4th Thursday of April every year. The motive is to encourage girls and young women to study and select ICT as their career. Bangladesh Open Source Network(BdOSN) is celebrating Girls In ICT day since 2015 with Women In Digital. There are a lot of events in the celebration of International Girls In ICT day such as open house day, boot camp, workshop, school quiz and roundtable discussion.
Jenex is one of the biggest call centers in Bangladesh. There was an open house day visit on Jenex on 24th May 2017. There were a total number of 25 participants from different universities. MD Faysal Alam Riyad, coordinator, BdOSN led the girls. The girls were amazed that every one of them talked to call center at least for once and they didn't know how a center works. They learned a lot about the call center in this visit. The girls were so interested that they visited the other branch at Nitol Tower on khilkhet. There were some girls who already decided to drop their CV on Jenex as it's not too hard to work there.
MD Faysal Alam Riyad said "The girls were very curious about the visit and after the visit, they looked very happy." He also thanked Jenex for giving the girls a chance to visit their office.
