Yielding Accomplished African Women

Yielding Accomplished African Women

Ghana will be the fastest growing economy in the world in 2018. The information and communication technology based jobs in Ghana, have already increased by 6.7% and are expected to exponentially grow. At current rates, 15 to 20 million well-educated young people will join Africa’s workforce every year until 2030. Yet Africa on average only captures 55% of its human capital, with low rates of female economic participation. Yielding Accomplished African Women (Yaa W.) will serve as a talent accelerator to harness these opportunities for women. Yaa W. is a year long, free program in which students complete an intensive educational program in finance/technology, leadership development, branding and professional etiquette. The Yaa W. program provides comprehensive certification courses, extensive online training software, and experience with hands-on social impact projects, constructed to ensure every participant masters the fundamental skills requisite for employment at top corporations.
