#TechTuesday with Regina Agyare
In 2012, Regina Agyare left her job at a major international bank in Ghana as the only female IT specialist to create Soronko Solutions – a software development company. As one of Ghana’s first female tech entrepeneurs, she has had to challenge the gender barrier in order for her to develop her startup. She co-founded “Tech Needs Girls,” which serves to mentor and educate young women to promote their interest in technology. It is her hope that she’ll be able to improve technical innovation, reduce social inequalities, teach girls leadership skills and critical thinking, and stop the exit of women from the workforce through her initiatives and pursuits.
