Women at the Forefront of Africa’s Tech Revolution

At ALX, we believe in the vital importance of bridging the digital gender divide and increasing the representation of women in tech. We champion the women who are driving innovation and devising solutions for the world of tomorrow. Our call to action is for women across the continent to not just have a seat at the table - but to redesign the table.

We’re creating actionable steps to advance women in tech.

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2023, ALX launched its first-ever Software Engineering cohort for women. With this cohort, we are demonstrating our commitment to transforming the status quo and providing women throughout the continent with the skills to be at the helm of the global digital economy. Ultimately, we seek to create a space where women can excel, thrive and lead.

“There is no good excuse for the lack of women in tech… The essence of technology and its effect on humanity depends upon women being at the table.”

CEO of Apple
