Inspiring STEM Girls and Women in Rwanda

P1130422

Today was the TechWomen delegation’s first day of meetings in Kigali, Rwanda. We met with the inspiring girls and young women students of the Akilah Institute for Women, coached proposals for STEM start up companies by kLab Open Space for IT Entrepreneurs, and heard about the ambitious projects of the Girls in ICT group – including their Miss Geek Rwanda entrepreneur contest (to be at the same time as the Miss Rwanda beauty pageant) on International Women’s Day. In the evening, we enjoyed an impressively-organized networking event and reception set up by our Rwandan TechWomen Emerging Leaders for two hundred local IT executives and the press.
