Women in Tech: Inspiration, No Fairytales.
Successful women in the tech industry can be a guiding light, illuminating the way and giving others the courage to forge their own paths into the digital world. Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation, this book presents 30 inspiring women working in tech from all around the world, with a focus on Africa. As part of their #eSkills4Girls initiative, BMZ wants to strengthen the rights of women in the digital world and advancing their increased participation and ownership.
I was commissioned to draw 20 of these portraits, and I wanted each portrait to represent the woman's tech skills, country of origin and personality.
Portraits of trailblazing women
