CSG has announced a partnership with Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative (CiTi) – one of the country’s oldest tech incubators – to expand the organization’s nationwide Women in Business program that is part of the commitment by CSG South Africa to defy social norms by offering tech skills alongside the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment.
This women-in-business program supports female entrepreneurs in their adoption and implementation of digital platforms that upskill their tech acuity in driving business growth and promoting inclusion. In 2021, 30 female ICT entrepreneurs will take part in a 10-week course before 3 finalists are selected to continue the 10-month long entrepreneurial program offering opportunities that connect with CSG women in leadership.
Channing Jones, CSG’s Chief Diversity and Social Responsibility officer said, “CSG is proud to partner with the Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative to expand the Women in Business program across the region.”
CiTi is a non-profit established in 1999 to act as an intersection for government, businesses, and society. The mission looks to build a future-fit inclusive community that will shape the future economy through innovation and technology. Since its inception, over 1700 women have been accommodated in the program while over 1,500 applying to join.
Submissions to the program open from Wednesday, 28th of July to the 12th of August 2021. Applications can be submitted here.
