For those who read my article on my trip in Accra, you already know that I had a big crush for Ghana. Since then, I try to follow a little more closely what is happening on this side, socially as well as entrepreneurial. Do not be surprised if you now see a few more articles on Lifestyle in Ghana (and other African countries too) on the blog.
Being thus the field of Tech Entrepreneurship and precisely in the feminine Tech entrepreneurship, I am very interested in African events that address these different aspects of Tech Entrepreneurship and / or the evolution of Digital in Africa, mostly to know what is being done over there. For now, this is the event that interests me … The African Women In Technology Conference which will take place from 15th to 17th December, in Accra, Ghana. I just hope that a Live Tweet will be available so that I can follow the conference via Twitter.
African Women in Technology had its inaugural show in East Africa in Kenya’s capital Nairobi (#AWITKenya) This conference registered over 300 women in technology. Now AWIT is preparing for its second conference which will be held in Accra Ghana.
Venue: Impact Hub Accra
Address: Otswe Street, Osu Ako Adjei
When: On December 15th – 17th, 2016
December 15, 2016-Networking -530pm-900pm
December 16, 2016- 8am-530pm
December 17, 2016 – 8am-530pm
Like the first conference in Kenya, AWITGhana will be one of its kind event seeking to provide attendees a unique blend of hands-on and deep-dive tech workshops, information sharing, and discussions by professional women (and men) within the tech space. All aimed at encouraging and mentoring young girls to pursue STEM-based education programs and careers.
While most conferences like this focus mainly on coding. AWITGhana is going to concentrate on all aspects of technology; from the very technical aspects of it to the human experience and applicability to real-life situations. The speakers and attendees at the conference will be from many different types of jobs and seniority; from college girls to senior executives in companies.
