Nearly one year ago, the Case Foundation had the pleasure of working with Ama Pomaa Boateng here in D.C.
Ama, a mentee in the 4th Annual Fortune/US State Department Global Women's Mentoring Partnership in 2009, is the founder and CEO of a growing non-profit - Ghanaian High-tech Women (GHW). GHW seeks to help Ghanaian women use IT skills in business management to facilitate the technological advancement of women. Ama has also developed a technologies and ideologies geared towards assisting women work through a myriad of options and questions regarding technology career choices.
Recently, GHW’s Career Essentials workshop certified twenty students in Career Preparation. The workshop sought to ease the transition from university to entrepreneurial careers by helping students identify personal interests and opportunities in business. It also served to prepare students for the risks and rewards associated with a career in entrepreneurship and social enterprise.
GHW is working to connect, train, and support 20 young women social entrepreneurs in Ghana. By encouraging sustainable, high impact, and scalable social innovations in a 12-month incubation, Ama’s program is addressing the gender digital gap and promoting socioeconomic development in Ghana. We are excited by the progress and potential of GHW.
We hope you’ll learn more and support Ama’s cause.
