Webinar on 5/28: Young Africans Seizing Opportunities in the Technology Sector

During our next Future Forward webinar, we explore insights regarding the ways young people are interacting with opportunities in the technology sector. The panel will feature tech and social entrepreneurs as well as development practitioners and young people. 

The upcoming webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 2015. RSVP at this link http://bit.ly/ayfmay28 and join the twitter chat using the #AfricaYouthFwd hashtag.

Across Africa, as in the rest of the world, a faster pace in the workplace calls for a faster and more technology savvy workforce. There are many opportunities arising out of the rapid rate of technology innovation across the continent. A key question is: how are young people positioned to seize these opportunities?
