Abisoye Ajayi-Akinfolarin, Founder of Pearls Africa Foundation will launch the \’Lady Labs Innovation Hub,\’ created to function as a collaborative centre for young women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
The hub will serve as a co-working space for women in technology and offer an avenue to drive their businesses. In turn, it is expected that these women techpreneurs will serve as mentors to young girls interested in developing their skills in STEM.
To date, the Hub has trained 143 girls who live in underserved communities and has connected these girls to 30 mentors who then provide various levels of mentorship and guidance. This launch will not just be an opportunity to become acquainted with these talented young women but will be an opportunity to unveil plans towards harnessing potential and increasing impact in the technology ecosystem.
