Bolt will be supporting Ghanaian women kick off businesses in the tech space in honor of International Women’s Day.

The transportation network company will launch an internship program, aiming to help 12 women across Africa fast-track their careers in the tech world.

Historically, the tech industry has been recorded to be male-dominated with only 25% of women working in the technological industry.

More women in tech mean more innovation, better problem solving, and more diverse, progressive ideas believes bolt.

The program offers a wide range of career choices and an opportunity to join different teams in Engineering, Operations, and Marketing.

In line with this, Bolt is calling out to the public to nominate the perfect

candidate for a career in tech, on Twitter or Instagram, explaining why they are fit for the internship.

Individuals are required to use the candidate’s handle during the nomination, use the hashtag #DriveForWITech and tag the Bolt account handle.

After this, three Ghanaian women who qualify will be selected in April to enroll in the internship program.

The company is also using the occasion to appreciate all women drivers who use the Bolt app to earn a living.
