Review for Yielding Accomplished African Women, Clayton, DE, USA
I joined Yielding Accomplished African Women (Yaa.W) in December 2019 after I participated in their Women in Machine Learning Conference. This was the first ever and the only conference of its kind in Africa.
Since then, I have been given a tremendous boost in my tech career through the various trainings offered through the organization.
I have also benefited a lot from the strong sisterhood of young tech and finance industry players and enthusiasts from all over the continent. The organization chalks an A in innovation, with creative initiatives to keep on making an impact on the continent despite the difficult terrain and the tumultuous times we've been in.
As an example, their annual career accelerator, which is traditionally an in-person training was still held in 2020 despite the pandemic. It was made entirely virtual and entirely free for an even wider cohort of young ladies from 10+ countries in Africa. When other organizations were postponing their programs or outrightly canceling them, Yaa.W has brought up initiative after initiative to build up the young women of Africa.
