Held simultaneously in all the countries, the event will feature programs focused on supporting the growth of women in technology and the African growth using technology.

Discussions will include women in leadership, digital Africa, social enterprise, work – life balance, security, innovation and technology for the next generation, et al.
The event is a veritable opportunity for women in tech to network, share and empower each other to improve and push forward the technology growth agenda.
“This is a collaborative attempt to build a global network, allowing us women to compare our challenges, learn from other countries and connect across borders to expand our influence,” said Ethel Cofie, founder of Women in Tech Africa and CEO of EDEL Technology Consulting.
