Girls Dominating Tech
Africa Agility is intentionally closing the gender gap in technology by helping girls access training/educational opportunities in technology, and digital agile practices. We are supporting the global movement to address the prevalent issue — the underrepresented women of color in tech.
To show the world that women of color exist and belong in tech, Africa Agility in collaboration with Lagos Women in Machine Learning and Data Science Lagos (WiMLDS) and Odessey educational foundation, have joined forces to achieve a common goal of ensuring a digital economy for Nigeria. We are empowering the youth, women, and girls with the necessary digital skills to compete in the digital world.
We are offering a free three-week intensive training Boot camp for 100 fresh/unemployed graduates in Lagos and its environs. Participants will be empowered with a strong foundation towards building a career in Tech as computer programmers and tech experts. They will also be awarded the Certified Scrum Master certification from the leading Agile organization in the world.
Girls in tech boot camp over the years have been the start of great things for participants has they are equipped with different tech skills that launches their career and improve their positioning. In partnership with Lagos state government, we’ve been able to train over 200 young ladies who have gone on to launch their career in tech.
From UI/UX design, web development, artificial intelligence, machine learning and programming, we continue to equip young ladies of colour with skills of the 21st century.
Girls in tech Boot camp is not a program for just theories. Participants built projects and got exposed to real world scenarios and projects that make them valuable in the marketplace.
Our facilitators are second to none has they bring their wealth of experience to teach, guide and mentor participants to start and improve their skills even when they had no prior experience or knowledge in tech.
