The #eSkills4GirlsCompetition is a program that aims to tackle the gender digital divide by supporting startups, social enterprises and NGOs who are supporting women in tech. Around 200 million women still only have restricted access to the Internet worldwide and are hence highly underrepresented in digital professions. We want to change that.
So we hosted this program, together with our global Impact Hub network – namely the hubs in Manila, Sao Paulo and Accra – and in partnership with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, G20 and Google.
Here you can watch a video summary of our first round of participants from April & May 2017!
