Our initiatives directly contributes to five of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): gender equality (SDG 5), education (SDG 4), entrepreneurship (SDG 8), innovation (SDG 9) and social inclusion (SDG 10).
Blockchain Education Program
The goal of this program is to bring more black women, globally, into the Blockchain and Fintech space.
Blockchain is creating many opportunities, however for women there are disparities. An investigation conducted in 2019 showed a total of 4.64% of female names in the main branches of open-source codes.
The predictions for blockchain is that the coin market cap will be $3 trillion by 2030, according to Gartner. It is also estimated that worldwide spending in the blockchain space is will grow to $15.9 billion by 2023.
Black women, who represents less than 0.001% of blockchain developers, have an opportunity to tap into this growing space.
