Social Media Week, SMW Lagos has announced the launch of it’s latest initiative, African Women in Tech (AWIT) in partnership with the Dangote Group and She Leads Africa to showcase, empower and provide equal opportunities as the men, for African women in the tech space.

“Women make noteworthy contributions to the tech space and all industries for that matter.  Yet, women are often not given the same consideration as their male counterparts,” Ngozi Odita, Co-Founder and Executive Director of  SMW Lagos.

“As an organisation, we believe that continued African progress and sustainable economic development can only be achieved if all citizens are empowered and given the capacity to move Africa forward. This is why SMW Lagos has made it a priority to put forth programs that are inclusive and more gender balanced. Our AWIT Startup Alley is one of several of such programs,” she concluded.

The SMW Lagos African Women in Tech (AWIT) Startup Alley demo presentation and installation will be hosted by Dangote Group on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. The event will feature 5 female tech startups.
