About Women in tech Africa
In order to identify and learn from other Women in Technology across Africa, Women in Technology across Africa spear headed and run the first Pan African women in tech virtual meet up which brought together over 150 women in technology roles across Africa and was featured in CNN.
The success of this process resulted in an established a formal Pan-African Network of Women in Technology to organise regular activities to provide effective support to women in technology across the African continent.
