Bolt has announced the launch of a Women in Tech internship program in Kenya to mentor young women in the tech space.
“For the second year running, we’re excited to be launching a month-long internship programme to help women in Kenya gain valuable work experience and fast-track their careers.
The tech industry has historically been a male-dominated space and we strongly believe that more women in tech means more inclusion, diverse and progressive society. This is why, in honor of this year’s International Women’s Day, we are aiming to help more women across Africa fast-track their career in the tech world.
We’re extremely proud of our last year’s interns — Rahma Halane was promoted to an Operations Coordinator after her internship, a role in which she excelled in, and was further promoted to an Operations Specialist at Bolt in March 2022. Gladys Onyango went on to run her own business and Mercy Cheruyiot chose to major in data science and machine learning, all having gained some valuable experience at Bolt.” Added Micah.Micah Kenneth, Regional Manager, Bolt
