advancing women in design

we are a design community giving African women the training and support to help them kick start or advance their alternate path in tech. Learn more

how we started

after conversations with women at different levels of their career, we noticed a gap. The women we spoke to felt that tech communities—including women focused communities—were too developer focused. They also wanted a space to not only improve themselves as designers, but as working professionals. Finally, they wanted a platform to collaborate and connect with other women designers—many are freelancers and those who work full-time mostly have male colleagues.



what we offer

we support women at all stages of their career by providing opportunities for visibility and growth, career development resources to grow soft skills and technical skills, and creating a community for collaboration, inspiration, and encouragement. We achieve this through meetups, workshops, designathons, trainings, and courses.
