In collaboration with Digital Explorers and Data Science Nigeria, the six-month paid scheme is specifically targeted at supporting women in tech and closing the gender gap within the African and global tech industry.
Digital Explorers launched in 2019, selecting 15 Nigerian ICT specialists, from a pool of 1,400 young talents. The first cohort of 15 digital explorers have spent a year in Lithuania, working, learning, and networking. They are now wrapping up their 1 – year career advancement journey and transitioning to full-time, more permanent employment.
For the next cohort, Digital Explorers is partnering with Data Science Nigeria to identify and select Data Analysts/Scientists for its 2020 Virtual Bootcamp (to commence on 20th October, 2020).

This program gives an opportunity for Nigerian Companies with existing female entry level data scientists and analysts to encourage their staff to apply. Participants will receive tailored training, international exposure and return after 6 months better equipped to contribute to the success of the organization.
