Technology has emerged as a leading contributor to Nigeria’s GDP, however very few women are players in this field. The event, happening this week at SMW Lagos, aims to discuss what is being done to address this gap.

The theme is ‘Where Are the Women–Examining the Lack of Women Developers in the Nigerian Technology Ecosystem’. The speakers are Judith Okonkwo (Director of Professional Development, Andela), Ommo Clarke (CEO, iBez), Tolulope Elugbadebo (Team Lead, Avante Consulting Solution) and Tarebi Alebiosu (MD, Yoke Consulting); with Oreoluwa Somolu Lesi (ED, W.TEC) as Moderator.

The W.Tec event will take place from 2.15 to 3.30pm on February 27 at SMW Campus, Landmark Centre, Masterclass Suite, Water Corporation Drive, off Ligali Ayorinde Road, Oniru, Victoria Island.

You can create an account, get a badge or register for this event. Event tags are #SMWWhereareWomen and #SMWLagos.
