The African Women Making Waves In The Tech Industry
“There aren’t enough women in tech.”
“Can a woman really be a tech person?”
“The best graphic designers in Nigeria are mostly men.”
“The tech industry is not for the fainthearted, and women can’t fit in.”
It’s no news that the tech industry is a (very) male-dominated field. It is a space that women describe as “highly competitive”, so they have to work twice as hard as their male counterparts to be seen.
Amidst the usual complaints that there aren’t enough women in the tech industry or the ones in it can’t match their male counterparts – one, we hear daily – Scale My Hustle has launched an African Women-in-Tech series, one that sheds light on thick-skinned women who, amid gender biases, are solving real-world problems; pulling their weight in the tech industry; creating innovations; and positively influencing the tech space.
From Ghana to Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and to the rest of the continent, Scale My Hustle will be sharing stories of the women taking the tech industry in Africa by storm.
