Women in Technology: Understanding the gender barriers

Women in Tech Africa: A follow-up activity on the 2018 Accra Summit on Women in Tech

Date: 15th-17th January 2019 Venue: Johannesburg
UN Office for South-South Cooperation

This week we contributed to the discussion on addressing Women in Technology at the roundtable discussion in South Africa hosted by the United Nations office for South South Cooperation. One of the issues that emerged was the need to leverage south-to south cooperation by connecting women across the global south, in particular African women, creating a space for mentorship and skills exchange. There is a need to also consider the financing challenge for female tech entrepreneurs and mechanisms to facilitate access to the same.
