We’re only 8 weeks away from Women in Tech Africa 2019 – this year’s largest gathering of women in tech in the continent. That’s why we’re reminding you that you can still get your tickets at the Early Bird Gold price of $225.

Why should you join us at Women in Tech Africa 2019?

Women in Tech Africa is a truly groundbreaking conference. Our agenda is based on the expertise and experiences of some of Africa’s most successful tech professionals, driven by extensive research into Africa’s booming tech sector.

We want to supercharge your career.

By attending you’ll get access to hands-on, practical workshops and talks by some truly inspirational individuals. Our aim is for you to walk away with actionable insights that you can use to sharpen your skillset from the second you leave the event.

Women in Tech Africa is about creating real change, together.

Tech’s gender gap is present in every profession we see – ICT roles in Africa, for example, have just 21% female employees. This is a shocking standard from one of the most productive and important industries in the world.

The power and potential of Africa’s digital economy is vast, fast and exciting to see, and there’s no better time than now to ensure that you’re a part of the conversation!

Women in Tech Africa is coming to Cape Town’s Century City Conference Centre on 18-19 March. To download a brochure, click here.
