Are you a woman in tech? Plan to attend the AFF & ‘W’ Initiative ‘Women in Tech’ fireside chat

Women have consistently broken through the glass ceiling and are shattering societal stereotypes in terms of the kinds of roles they play in the labour force. However, there is one sector where women are still underrepresented, technology. From the Nigerian Women in Tech 2020 Report, it was found that more young women and girls are, in fact, opting to study STEM courses at the undergraduate level. While 66% of respondents are studying STEM courses out of their own free will, less than 50% see themselves in STEM careers in 5-10 years. Thankfully, organisations like Access Bank and the Africa Fintech Foundry are working to bridge this gender gap in the technology sector.
