Ride-hailing firm Bolt has unveiled a new campaign to empower women in technology across Africa.
The campaign will run throughout this month and is targeted at jumpstarting careers for women in the tech space regardless of their field. As a concrete step, Bolt will be offering 12 internships to women across Africa. From Operations to Marketing, PR to Engineering, Bolt says there could be a role for anyone choosing to challenge.
The internship will offer women at the start of their careers access to Top Bolt executives with years of experience across Europe and Africa.
”Successful candidates will have the chance to not only start a career in tech, but also make a difference in the ride-hailing space.” the company says.
If you know anyone who deserves this opportunity you can nominate her with a post on your social media (Twitter or IG) making a case for why she deserves the Internship role and what she would contribute to the industry if given the opportunity using the hashtag #DrivingWITech-Kenya
To ensure that Bolt find’s your entry, tag Bolt (@bolt_kenya on Instagram and @boltapp_ke on Twitter) and make sure that your page is not private and that you are using the correct hashtag.
The top finalists will be announced in April and the internship program will begin in May.
