Asher Segun-Olasanmi: Bridging the Gender Gap in Tech
Asher: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Through Young Females in Tech and Creatives (YFTC), I work to make sure that young girls who were told they do not belong in tech are re-oriented and equipped to do all they want to do and be all they want to be! The challenge of female tech illiteracy in Nigeria (and beyond) has been fueled by fear, lack of opportunity, and social biases. YFTC tackles this step-by-step by organizing workshops and providing scholarships for females to study tech-related courses.
