Safaricom WIT Outreach: Taita Taveta University

The Safaricom Women in Technology is an organization of passionate women working in technology driven departments in Safaricom who look to empower young ladies in their transition from the classroom to the workplace. Every year, these amazing team of ladies come together to mentor young ladies in campus and in high school via various platforms.

During the Coast campus outreach that happened in January 2019, Tech Lady was privileged to host the Safaricom WIT outreach in Taita Taveta University. The session took place on Monday, 21st January,2019. The audience comprised of students spanning across various departments in the university, both male and female. To engage the students, we had an amazing team of ladies from Safaricom.

TTU Tech Ladies and gentlemen attended the session with the WIT team on January 21st, 2019.

We had a good time interacting with the ladies as they facilitated various sessions to engage the students. These were:

Session Facilitated by:
What WIT is all about Janet Wafubwa
The evolution of Radio technologies Diana Ogeto  
Cyber-security Joylynn Kirui  
Software development, Automation and Machine Learning Beth Wangari
Micro-services Caren Owour
Question and Answer Janet Wafubwa

Two of the key things that the students took away from the session were:

  • The need to take extra initiative to read and learn broadly. In the world we are living in, being the best is the only way to set yourself apart. Investing in building your knowledge banks can be as simple as taking an extra online course, learning a new technology or broadening your networks.
  • The process of applying for an internship at Safaricom and tips on how to go about it successfully.

The session was an enlightening one and we definitely look to having more empowering sessions.
