The Unlocking Women And Technology training program is in its second year of impact in the Ghanaian technology industry. Neither has the vision changed neither nor the drive to make impact abated. This training program is designed to address the problem of low representation of women in the Ghanaian technology industry. By training young ladies and equipping them with both programming and entrepreneurial skills, they can enter the technology industry and stand firmly on their two feet while touching lives and improving the way businesses are run with the software solutions they will develop.
This year’s final pitch is upon us and it will be held on two separate days. The dates for the pitches are 12th and 14th October 2017 at Ispace Ghana, Labone. We are in for a treat. In September, the trainees underwent a demo-pitch exercise to make them familiar with making presentations of such nature and also to help them better present their ideas to an audience. Corrections were made where necessary and compliments given accordingly. I believe it is the hope of all who will attend the final pitch, that come 12th and 14th October 2017, the UWAT 17 ladies will present great business ideas in all eloquence, excellence, and confidence.
