Why we step in place
There is a significant gender disparity in the technology field, including Web3, in Africa. Women are underrepresented in technical roles, leadership positions, and decision-making processes.
LIMITED ACCESS TO RESOURCES
Women in Africa often have limited access to resources such as computers, internet connectivity, and reliable electricity, which are essential for engaging with Web3 technologies.
CULTURAL AND SOCIAL BARRIERS
Deep-rooted cultural and social norms can act as barriers for women in Africa who wish to pursue careers or entrepreneurial opportunities in Web3.

Web3 will flourish if it's built with diversity in mind. Industries that are represented with diversity of thought, experience, ethnicity and gender reflect their ecosystems and users most accurately. We're proud to initiate African Women of Web3 (AWoW3) initiative to bring more women into the fold and create a financial system for the internet that works for all. We at AWoW3 are proud to sign the pledge in support of the Women of Africa to build a truly unstoppable force for good. AWoW3 is delighted to help connect women everywhere to educational opportunities and training resources for Web3, blockchain Web 3 digital / virtual assets. We also tokenize and work with NFTs. We believe access and education will level the playing field and usher in new possibilities for more.
Web3 industry needs to promote gender diversity and inclusivity to foster innovation and growth. By acknowledging and addressing the specific challenges faced by women, the industry can create a welcoming and accessible space for everyone to thrive.
