About Tech Chicks

Tech Chicks is our way of celebrating young women blazing a trail in Nigerian technology by spotlighting them, drawing attention to their work and connecting them with other women working in technology or contemplating a career in this phenomenal field.
 
The 2018 Tech Chicks were selected from crowd-sourced nominations by a panel of women achievers in technology, marketing and entrepreneurship based on criteria including the impact of their work and their mentoring potential.
 
This year’s list is at best a snapshot of incredible Nigerian women in technology. There are many more who deserve to be recognised for bravely pressing on through systems, work environments and corporate cultures that do not welcome women with open arms. To nominate yourself or someone else for consideration ahead of next year’s list, please send an email with your name and bio to info@alat.ng.
