Registration Open: 2016 Africa Summit on Women and Girls in Technology

The digital gender divide remains an unacceptable barrier to achieving the vision of a thriving Africa that benefits all her people. Join us in Accra on September 13-14 for the inaugural Africa Summit on Women and Girls in Technology to help find solutions to bridge this gap.

We’re jointly organising the Summit with the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), in collaboration with UN Women, the Ghana­-India Kofi Annan Center of Excellence in ICT (AITI­-KACE), and the African Development Bank.  The forum will explore how technology policy can further the rights and interests of women and girls in Africa so that millions of African women and girls can benefit from access to technology and use their skills to build a better Africa for all.

It is an opportunity to join technologists, women’s rights activists, and policy experts to discuss key issues such as access to affordable broadband, women’s rights online, digital education and skills, and digital entrepreneurship.

Register now to reserve your place in Accra this September 13-14. For more information, visit a4ai.org and follow A4AI on Twitter at @A4A_Internet

A limited number of travel scholarships are available to support the participation of women and girls based outside of Accra, Ghana. Full details on how to apply for these are provided on the registration form.
