African Ada Awards and Africa Code Week
The first-ever Africa Code Week, taking place across Africa on 1-10 October 2015, was launched last week with a CodeWeek Celebrity Challenge in Johannesburg. The inaugural edition of Africa Code Week will span eleven countries and aims to reach 20,000 kids. And we would like half of those reached to be girls! To that end, the Digital Leadership Institute — organizers of the Ada Awards — is teaming up to promote participation of girls in Africa Code Week, and to recognize, via the 2015 African Ada Awards, outstanding girls and women in tech in Africa and the organizations who support them.
If your organization would like to be involved in promoting the 2015 African Ada Awards, please contact us.
