After having volunteered for three years in Moldova for the world’s biggest tech entrepreneurship challenge for girls – Technovation Challenge – I have now been appointed Regional Coordinator for Ukraine!
It’s such an honour and a big challenge. Luckily I have already identified a first group of volunteers and partners who are going to share responsibility to make this happen: support teams of Ukrainian school-aged girls to take part in the global challenge and, if we are lucky, go all the way to San Francisco for the World Pitch event in Summer 2017. But the real goal, of course, is to break gender stereotypes around IT careers in Ukraine and open the way for girls and women to reap the benefits of a sector which is in great expansion.
Wish me luck and join me if you can!
