NAIROBI, Kenya - Feb. 8, 2024 - PRLog -- Acyberschool Announces the Inaugural "Top 100 Cybersecurity Women to Watch in Africa" Initiative

Nairobi, Kenya, February 2024 – Acyberschool, a leader in digital skills and cybersecurity education across Africa, today announced the launch of its pioneering initiative, the "Top 100 Cybersecurity Women to Watch in Africa." Aimed at recognizing and celebrating the significant contributions of women in the field of cybersecurity, this initiative seeks to inspire the next generation of female professionals and address the gender gap in the cybersecurity workforce.

Scheduled to coincide with International Women's Day, the unveiling of the nominees currently being nominated will take place on March 8, 2024, followed by a grand award ceremony on June 8, 2024, in Nairobi, Kenya. This annual event, set to be hosted in different countries in Africa each year is set to become a landmark in the African cybersecurity and digital technology sectors, highlighting female professionals' achievements and contributions to the field.

Bridging the Gender Gap in Cybersecurity
Despite the rapid growth of Africa's digital economy, women remain significantly underrepresented in cybersecurity roles. The "Top 100 Cybersecurity Women to Watch in Africa" initiative not only aims to spotlight the achievements of women in this critical field but also to encourage more young women and girls to pursue careers in cybersecurity to power them to higher earning potential, thereby improving their earning potential while closing the gender gap and building a more inclusive digital future for Africa.

A Call for Collaboration
Acyberschool invites regional and global organisations, institutions, and individuals across Africa to join in this effort by nominating deserving women, offering support, and participating in the events. This initiative provides a unique opportunity for partners to demonstrate their commitment to promoting gender diversity and empowerment in the technology sector.

Empowering Women, Securing the Future
By recognizing the top women in cybersecurity, acyberschool aims to not only celebrate their success but also to inspire confidence in the security measures developed and implemented by a diverse and inclusive workforce. This initiative aligns with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those focusing on gender equality and industry, innovation, and infrastructure.
