In honor of International Women’s Day this year, Kaduna State University and Women Techmakers are hosting a conference at CoLab in Kaduna, Nigeria on March 17 – 18. This event meant to contribute to the creation of a supportive global community in which women can connect, be inspired, and encourage each other to realise their passions.
International Women’s Day is marked on March 8th every year. In different regions, the focus of celebrations range from general respect and appreciation toward women to a celebration of women’s economic, political, and social achievements. International Women’s Day is an important opportunity to recognise how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond. The Google’s Women Techmakers programme provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology.
