Women in Tech Week is taking place simultaneously in more than 30 countries, including Mauritius. Last year, 250 people participated in the event. This year, new countries have been added to the list, including Uganda, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Mozambique, Morocco and Botswana.

 

20,000 entries expected for the 2018 edition of Women in Tech

For this new edition of Women in Tech Week, no less than 20,000 participants are expected. This will be an opportunity for women from the African region to exchange and take stock of their different experiences. This ranges from experience as a business owner to the development of technical and soft skills. FYI, the keynote speakers for this 2018 edition will be Ethel Cofie, Lexy Owusu-Boahene, Patricia Obo-Nai and Phyllis Ntananga.

Pushing the boundaries and being open to new ideas

Women in Tech Week 2018 promises to be more educational and exciting. Indeed, the goal of the organizers is to push the limits, but also to bring a certain openness to new ideas. In addition, through a real networking opportunity, the conference aims to help women in the ICT sector to progress and grow in this field of activity.

 

Helping women to grow and progress in ICT

This exchange is intended to be inspiring, motivating and above all enriching for all women who work in the ICT field. As a reminder, in 2017, the highlight of the event was actually the “Best Female Digital Technology Entrepreneur”. The Women in Tech conference aims to provide women with all the necessary content to progress and flourish in this world.
