About Women in tech Africa

 

In order to identify and learn from other Women in Technology across Africa, Women in Technology across Africa   spear headed and run the first Pan African women in tech virtual meet up  which brought together over 150 women in technology roles across Africa and was featured  in CNN.

The success of this process resulted in an established a formal Pan-African Network of Women in Technology to organise regular activities to provide effective support to women in technology across the African continent.

 

Women in Tech Africa’s Vision is three fold

  • Creating today’s female leaders and role Models for tomorrow’s Women
  • Showing the world what a strong African woman in capable of achieving
  • Support African growth through technology

Women in Tech Africa is the brainchild of ICT4D GH Foundation

 

Women in Tech Africa  has membership of over 500 women in over 30 countries in Africa and will be launching offices in South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia and Canada in addition to Ghana by September 2015
