1000 Women in Design 2022: Selection and Eligibility Criteria

Last year, we helped 1000 women build skills in design to challenge the gender gap in the tech space in Sub Saharan Africa where women constitute just 30 per cent of the tech industry’s professionals. We’re not done yet. This year, we’re giving access to another 1000.

This year, we are expanding women’s access to design education and breaking the bias, stereotypes and discrimination as we continue to forge women’s equality in the design world. #BreakTheBias
