*Call for Presentations*
Submission deadline: July 25, 2016
Showcase your work at the 2016 Africa Summit on Women and Girls in
Technology, taking place September 13-14th in Accra, Ghana.

The summit is a great opportunity to join leading African women in
technology and ICT policy to debate solutions and contribute to the policy
processes that will bridge the digital gender gap in Africa.

We are looking to feature women-led initiatives that address at least one
of the summit’s focus areas: *affordable broadband, women's rights online,
digital education and skills,* and *digital entrepreneurship.* You may
propose a presentation in the format of a lightning talk, demo, or poster.

Apply now!

Short talk or video vignette highlighting fresh and thought-provoking
ideas, ongoing projects, research, or personal stories that address the
realities of African women and girls in technology. Show us your passion;
the floor is yours for four minutes!
Interactive demo of new technologies and online platforms designed by
and/or for women, providing an opportunity for participants to get to know
you and your creative innovations. Demos should be hands-on and allow
participants to try it out!
Participate in a gallery presentation of technology research and projects
designed by and/or for African women and girls. Be creative—your poster may
include infographics, photographs, and other methods of presentation.

To prepare the best application, learn more about the summit
