Project summary

There is a global skills shortage in design and technical skills. With women accounting for less than 30% of the tech sector in Sub-Saharan Africa, there is significant untapped potential for talent and for creating equity.

Some of the barriers preventing more women from participating in the tech sector include a lack of knowledge, lack of equipment and data, and lack of an accessible entry point.

This project will enable 200 women across Africa to kick-start their careers in design and tech. They will learn design skills on the training programme, access mentors, and be provided resources to help them continue their professional development.
