Organized by the Ghana Tech Lab under the theme "Promoting Female Participation in Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship," Anita Erskine advised ladies to resist being pressured into doing things against their morals and upbringing.

"Things in our enviroment change, so dont tell yourself that youve failed or afraid simply because it feels the word is moving ahead of you, strive hard and pursue that that project youve set for yourself," she said.

"If you have dreams, seek coaching, seek guidance, pursue them and dont wait for the big opportunities before you start to make a move, move with the little ones available to you," Anita Erskine added.
