We are women technologists
In a continent where women form a majority of the population and half of the workforce, it is an anomaly that the percentage of women working in technology is less than 15%. Technology is one of the key factors driving Africa’s projected economic rise. As such, there is enormous potential for maximizing the growth of technology through increasing the number and quality of women in technology.
That’s where AkiraChix comes in..
AkiraChix aims to inspire and develop a successful force of women in Technology that will change Africa’s future. We plan to do this through our key programs areas of networking, mentorship and training.
