We are celebrating international women’s day by exposing women and girls in the townships to all angles of technology. Encourage, innovate, and educate them to get involved to the exciting world of technology.
They will get a chance to ask all the burning questions that they have always wanted to ask. We will have a panel of women experts in tech, who will talk about the different tech careers, fields, their experiences, and most importantly, we'll explore what it would mean to be audaciously bold in the tech industry, to walk through the world with courage and confidence.
NOTE: This cooperation with BabesGotBytes.org is our second event in March to celebrate Internation Women's Day. For the invite to our March 8 meetup at partner Accso's Cape Town office please check here.
