131 Sunflower Hub Launches Adenta Ladies In Tech Community
The 131 Sunflower Hub in collaboration with the Ghana Tech Lab and with support from the Ministry of Communications, the World Bank and the Young Africa Works launched its Ladies In Tech (LIT) Community for the Adenta Municipality. Launched on its premises on the 8th of August, the Adenta LIT Community seeks to bridge the gender gap in the tech fields. The members of the LIT Community would also be provided with mentorship and guidance to enable them flourish in their tech careers.
Welcoming the ladies, Joshua Awuitor-the tech lead- explained that the Adenta LIT Community is one of many LIT Communities formed all over Ghana. He also encouraged the ladies to take advantage of the community and build themselves up in their careers.
Ethel Ashong-Nuga, the Executive Assistant, delved into how this brainchild came about. She said after attending the pretech, some ladies do not make it to the basecamp. Most of the ladies who do, end up reverting back to their previous state and forget about their experience and knowledge. All these led to the birth of the Ladies in Tech. Ethel also mentioned that the community serves as a platform for the ladies to continually hone their skills. It would also enable the members to be in constant touch with each other, share entrepreneurial skills and keep advancing in their careers.
The Project Lead for the Adenta Ladies In Tech Community, Miriam Ocloo Kwashiego, wrapped up the launch by informing the ladies of the investment support available to them. She went on to inform them that the community is open to all ladies in tech as well as ladies who are interested in entering the tech field as well. The ladies, on the other hand, expressed profound interest in the initiative as it gave them a plethora of opportunities to become the best they can be in their various fields of expertise.
