African Women in Technology Conference 2019

“Speaking with representatives of various tech organizations from all over Africa, the conference presented a great opportunity for women to be better versions of themselves. Speaking at the event, Laura Chite the CEO CIO East Africa noted, “This is an opportunity to be a better version of oneself not just in the technology careers but holistically. It is worth seizing.””

Two things are true: The leadership of women is critical to our survival. And technology has the potential to solve many social and economic problems that are pervasive on the continent. Looking forward to seeing many more similar events both at home and abroad.

See You Yesterday

“High school best friends and science prodigies C.J. and Sebastian spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. But when C.J.’s older brother Calvin dies after an encounter with police officers, the young duo decide to put their unfinished tech to use in a desperate bid to save Calvin.”

Why it’s important that Ivanka was in Africa

“Ivanka Trump is in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a four-day tour to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative, a $50 million United States initiative launched by her father, President Trump in February. The initiative is aimed at advancing women’s economic empowerment through a whole-of-government approach to reach 50 million women globally by 2025.”

This initiative, on the surface, certainly looks like a bold, progressive move by the Trump administration. Let’s look under the hood to see what measures are in place to make sure that they’re not just creating a higher-skilled slave labor force of women. Sounds like a project to me!

Are women the future of Nigeria’s tech industry?

“Over the years, the technology sector remained a road less travelled for women, despite the progress they continue to make in other professional fields. In this issue, we journey with a new generation of women pioneering tech advancements in Africa’s biggest economy.”

Organizations partner with African women entrepreneurs

“APO Group (www.APO-opa.com), the leading media relations consultancy and press release distribution service in Africa and the Middle East, has been named Principal Partner to the Africa Women Entrepreneurship and Innovation Forum (AWIEF) (www.AWIEForum.org) Conference to assist in amplifying the forum’s message and core objective of empowering women entrepreneurs across the African continent.”

The AWIEF appears to be moving it’s agenda forward with a very powerful strategic partnership. Think about how much more progress our communities would make with such partnerships, especially with Black-owned businesses…
