In 2019, the Digicel Foundation hosted its very first ‘Girls Power Tech’ to empower and inspire young women to explore the world of ICT. The event opened doors and provided opportunities for the young women to envision professional careers in this male-dominated field. Careers that can innovate, disrupt and challenge the status quo through the use of new technology. In some instances there will be a heavy ICT focus however, there are also opportunities to incorporate tech to enhance dynamism in traditional professions.
This year, in collaboration with Digicel Business and CISCO we will be hosting a virtual ‘Girls Power Tech’ on August 21, 2020 from 9am-6pm This year’s theme is ‘Creating A Digital Future’ and we are anxious to have you join in the fun.
One of the major elements of the 'Girls Power Tech' event is the Hackathon. Participants will be required to develop technology based solutions to three (3) social challenges. The challenges will address issues resulting out of our current ‘new normal’ post COVID environment focusing on; (1) Saving Lives (2) Saving Education and (3) Saving Small Businesses.
