Meet our Black Girls In Tech : Nigeria team who are dedicated to carry out our mission of making technology more accessible to black women in Nigeria by providing resources , education and opportunities. We hosted over 250 young women in our "Tap Into Tech" Conference in lagos, Nigeria in August.
BGIT is an amazing community which has put me in touch with so many like minded young women in the tech industry. Since joining last year and sharing experiences with other members - I gained more confidence in my skills which led to me landing a new front-end role with a salary that better reflected my skills, as well as the courage to share more of my work and branch out into freelancing on the side. I was also recently lucky enough to have placed as runner up in a BGiT competition to win a place on a UI/UX course, which I’m really looking forwards to starting. This community has provided so many great opportunities in such a short time, and I’m excited to see what comes next!
Black Girls in Tech has been amazing at helping me break into the tech space. When I first joined as a member I was welcomed and offered very useful advice and opportunities! I am gratefully for the support I received whilst starting my journey into tech. I hope other women get the same experience with BGIT.
I want to thank Black Girls in Tech for their mentorship programme , I would not have been able to come this far in my tech journey without them.
