SWITCH Conference

SWITCH is a 2-day conference scheduled to take place on the 7th and 8th June 2019 on the beautiful island of Mauritius.

Our vision is to bring together both men and women in STEM, tech   enthusiasts, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and students to engage in a   series of talks, workshops and brainstorming sessions. This way, we can   spur learning, foster inspiration and provoke action towards overcoming   challenges facing the African continent through realizing  opportunities  for women in tech.

The  SWITCH conference is organized by a  diverse team of students from the  African Leadership University in  Mauritius consisting of young  entrepreneurs, activists, and engineering  and computing students who  are passionate about technology and being  change-makers using  technology.

The conference is open to the general public, both men and women and it is completely free of charge. Secure your spot here: https://www.meetup.com/switchMauritius/events/261291513/

Please note that the registration will officially close on Friday, 31st May 2019.
