As Women in Tech Country Director for South Africa, we partner with companies/individuals, it’s centered around our 4 pillars of action; Advocacy, Education, Business, and Social Inclusion.

We do various programs such as:
– creating IT learning centers and upgrading school IT facilities

As Co-Founder for NFTy-art, a start-up that helps educate people on the Metaverse, NFT’s, Web3 and blockchain, whilst helping African Artist mint their art into NFT’s ( that can be sold on the Metaverse via our digital art gallery.

I often speak about the future of work, digital inclusion, diversity and inclusion, skills gap, and do workshops on CV writing, preparing for interviews, or personal branding to help women with their career journey.
