On Tuesday, March 28, I was invited to be one of the judges at the #eskills4girls Competition at Impact Hub, Accra.

 

The #eSkills4Girls Competition was designed for ventures, startups, initiatives, organisations and NGOs who empower women through/in tech.

The selection criteria for teams participating were: must be 50% women in the team and idea must tackle the gender digital divide (empower women in/through tech), and the 2 finalists get a round trip to Berlin to represent Ghana at the G20 summit in Berlin.

It was a rich experience for me watching the teams form, brainstorm and come up with interesting, some wacky, solutions to improve gender digital divide.

Update:

On April 26, 2017, our winner from Ghana, Ivy Barley, presented her solution, Developers in Vogue, and won the global competition held in Berlin, Germany – getting €15000, mentorship from Google and the opportunity to meet German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
