Networking Session (Wed, July 20th) – At the Nairobi Garage over 90 attendees which consisted of mainly community leaders and students that could not attend an all-day session.

Day 1 (Thurs, July 21st) – AWITKenya, official kickoff day that saw about 120 women grace the occasion. The event was held at the Kenyatta University main campus.

Day 2 (Fri, July 22nd) – AWITKenya’s second and last day, 160 women were in attendance.

The AWITKenya conference attendees were 60% developers and 40% participants with non-technical backgrounds. The conference also created enough social media clout that the hashtag #AWITKenya trended both in Kenya and New York for the two days of the conference.

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. RSVP By Clicking here
