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.
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.
