Brussels Kunstenoverleg (BKO)

The Brussels Kunstenoverleg (BKO) is a cultural network that was established in 2001. Today it brings together more than 100 Dutch speaking cultural institutions in the Brussels region of Belgium : theatres, companies, art labs, festivals, etcetera ; small organizations as well as big institutes. As a Brussels based network, the BKO has a close collaboration with the French speaking cultural network Réseau des Arts à Bruxelles (RAB).

Free Software Foundation (FSF)

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a non-profit organisation with a worldwide mission to promote computer user freedom and to defend the rights of all free software users.

As our society grows more dependent on computers, the software we run is of critical importance to securing the future of a free society. Free Software is about having control over the technology we use in our homes, schools and businesses, where computers work for our individual and communal benefit, not for proprietary software companies or governments who might seek to restrict and monitor us. The Free Software Foundation exclusively uses free software to perform its work.

The Free Software Foundation is working to secure freedom for computer users by promoting the development and use of free (as in freedom) software and documentation—particularly the GNU operating system — and by campaigning against threats to computer user freedom like Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) and software patents.

Interface3, Centre de formation bruxellois pour femmes en recherche d’emploi

Interface3 tries to expand and diversify professional investment fields of women and enable them to build effective foundation for a professional career in a job market in which computer skills are not only a great asset but became a must !

To reach this goal the organisation offers introduction modules to information and communication technologies, guidance modules allowing women to discover the careers offered by the various businesses of the ICT field and finally, qualifications and certification courses leading to ICT jobs or jobs in making intensive use of IT tools.

Why is this important ? Today the digital gap between men and women is gradually reducing concerning access and use, particularly through the development of Internet. However this almost equal use hides an important imbalance in the mastery of these technologies, operational systems and construction of computer. Indeed, there are less than 20% of female ICT professionals.
