"African Women to Watch" - Sophia Bekele on Bloomberg TV

By CircleID Reporter

In its TV Special program, Bloomberg TV recently featured Sophia Bekele, Founder and Executive Director of DotConnectAfrica Trust along with Juliana Rotich as "two of Africa's leading ladies in the ICT sector" presenting their stories in their prime TV program ,"African Women to Watch". In the interview, Bekele talks about her ICT career journey and focus on helping bridge the "digital divide" that currently exists between Africa and the developed countries. She highlighted the fact that women are seriously under-represented within the ICT sector in Africa, as situation that has caused a clear 'vacuum' to exist in the African tech-space, which can be firmly addressed by empowering more women to take up leadership roles within the ICT industry.
