Women in Tech

Top Women in Tech Programmes Around the world

When you’re a woman in a male-dominated business searching for fulfillment and prosperity, it’s easy to feel like you’re not part of it. Despite women holding only about 20 percent of tech jobs and 25 percent of its leadership positions, we have a long way to go until we have gender parity and make women feel at ease in a field that’s also very much theirs.

Below are the top 10 programs for women who have chosen the STEM career paths;

  1. African Women in Tech (AWIT); The event series of the African Women in Technology program, a product of IBOM LLC, was born out of a desire to connect, educate and empower women determined to advance their tech careers.
