2021 Africa Symposium on Women and Girls in Technology

by World Wide Web Foundation, A4AI & partners

Bridging the digital gender gap is a critical step toward the vision of a thriving Africa—yet women in some communities are up to 50% less likely than men to be online. Join us to design solutions that will enable millions of African women and girls to benefit from access to technology—and use their skills to build a better Africa for all.




The symposium is a continuation of the summit forum focused on how technology policies and plans can further the rights and interests of African women and girls. It’s a great opportunity to join leaders in technology and ICT policy, women’s rights advocates, and aspiring technologists to contribute to the policy processes that will bridge the digital gender gap in Africa.

We invite participants who are primarily based in an Africa country, committed to creating opportunities for women and girls, and have demonstrated interest or experience in at least one of the focus areas:

Affordable broadband
Women’s rights online
Digital education and skills
Digital entrepreneurship
Register now—and use #TechWomenAfrica to tell us how you are making digital inclusion possible for African women and girls.
Stay tuned for the program agenda to be posted soon!
