The Conference is organised by African Women in Tech (AWIT) and sponsored by SAP Women in Technology with the aim of educating African women on the myriads of opportunities in the blockchain space giving them the opportunity to learn, acquire skills and creatively solve problems through innovation.
“I would always push women towards more of learning the datasets behind anything that they’re trying to build, get information on it and, if you don’t have it, let’s talk with partnership organisations to see what information they may have. And if they still don’t have it, this is where you come in to build a solution that incorporates some of that.” Ms. Anie Akpe the founder of African Women in Tech (AWIT).
“Africa has a lot of talent and potential; the problem remains in offering the right resources for young people to explore and grow. When it comes to young women especially, we see a structure that a lot of the time doesn’t play in their favor, but these young women are representing half of Africa’s population, therefore they need to be onboard with tech and innovation so the continent as a whole can excel. Without their equal representation in tech, how can we expect Africa to develop into the powerhouse it truly is?” Sarah Borda, Project Manager, Office of the CEO, SAP
Our carefully designed agenda will feature keynotes, presentations, panels, exhibitions, pitches and career talks which provides attendees with a unique opportunity to interact, comment, share their views & opinions, discuss and understand trends and discover opportunities.
