Event description

Description

In 2016, our members who had benefited from the Grace Hopper Conference for Women in Computing (GHC) and Africa Internet Summit (AIS) felt the need to create an annual continental gathering organized for learning and stimulation of women in technology where everyone is involved. It is our wish that more girls and women in tech in Africa could experience the learning, exposure, networking and inspiration related to meeting successful techwomen.
The value that AfChix TechWomen Summit aims to create:
1. High level and continental-wide advocacy on what needs to be done to increase the percentage of women in the African tech industry.
2. Collaboration with leaders of the African ICT Industry to support women in technology in the workplace and
policy.
3. Increased awareness of the important role of women in technology and other technical careers
4. An annual continental learning, role modelling and networking platform that will engage 500 women and girls across the continent.
5. Creation of an Africa-wide community of women in technology that will network and collaborate beyond this
summit
