In fact, science may not be as confusing as all that since there’s plenty of proof that women all over Africa have already figured it out. There may not have been many female techies in Africa a few years ago, but the story is fast changing now. Women in Tech Africa ((WITA) week is coming to Nigeria bearing interesting tidings of science and technology.
WITA 2016 is organized by Women in Tech Africa – a group in itself dedicated to building platforms for women to venture into various fields of technology- the objective is basically to build potent and active awareness for women in the field or aspiring; encouraging them to achieve as much as possible in all things technology and enabling African women who impact lives through the use of technology so as to foster growth and advancement in Africa
WITA is planning a five-day event which kicks off on the 26th to the 30th of September 2016. It would bring together key stakeholders in technology and will be hosted in about 40 countries, with 400 events worldwide physically and virtually. The main event is scheduled to hold in both Lagos and Abuja.
Some important focal points will be Virtual Reality and Machine Learning, Getting cutting edge skills to Africa, Mobile education, Women in leadership: Strategies to survive in a male-driven culture, the impact of the digital economy in Africa.
This is an opportunity to grow, network with the invited CEOs and CIOs and the many IT and Technology Decision Makers who make up the Women in Tech Africa membership and also strengthen support for the women in the tech ecosystem.
