Early this year, Ivy Barley co-founded Developers in Vogue to bridge the technology gap between males and females in the tech field and shape a world where more African women will be daring enough to take on jobs in a male-dominated tech field.
Out of the 20 participants, 5 of them have so far gotten full-time jobs in tech firms, another 5 are currently working as freelancers and 6 recently won a Devless hackathon organized by the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology.
For her efforts, Ivy won the Ghana Youth Social Entrepreneurship competition held by Digital Opportunity Trust, The TEN Ghana Elevator Pitch Contest in June 2017 and the E-Skills for Girls Competition In Berlin, Germany which came with €15,000 prize and Mentorship from Google. She also had the Opportunity to meet the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
Ivy is currently hoping to win $100,000 in the Kwese Inc #GoGettaz competition. By winning $100,000 she hopes to train 1,000 girls in 2018. Help her make this dream come true by voting for her.
