About Me

Lina Sarah Team - Recruitment & HR Solutions.
Our main focus is on Female Engineers in Africa.Women are generally underrepresented in Leadership roles. The perceived notion is that there are few available women with the relevant expertise with specialized skills to take up demanding roles.
This perception is further propagated in historically male dominated industries and professions such as engineering.
The misconception of lack of women skill in specialized fields needs to be obliterated by placing a consented focus and effort in the empowerment and advancement of women in the African continent; thereby showcasing Africa as a talent hub for capable and talented women.
African women have a story to tell therefore we need to give them a platform to showcase their talent, capability and a voice.

Why are you interested in being part of VC4Africa?

I am interested in a mentor, a sounding board someone to share their experiences and wisdom with me.Further to that I need assistance in fundraising in order for me to be able to create a networking platform app for Women Engineers in Africa..The APP will be called Women Engineers Africa Arise.It is a career networking platform. The platform is used for building CV’s and portfolios. It highlights the member’s education, qualifications, skills, work experience and testimonials from people they have worked with in the past. The platform can be used to share with colleagues and for prospective employees to find specific talent and demographics. The platform will be more engaging and targeted at a specific talent pool, i.e professional women engineers and graduates.
