The Hacklab Foundation, organisers of Ghana’s largest annual hackathon, have partnered with technology company, IBM to introduce an online educational campaign in the wake of COVID-19, dubbed ‘Hacklab IBMdna Webinar Series’.
The goal of this series is to help the Ghanaian student and working executive to gain skills necessary for their professional growth.
The Hacklab Foundation is an international non-profit organization headquartered in Ghana with focus on preparing the youth for future digital jobs through technology education and skills development.
Over the years, they have achieved this through hackathons, boot camps, mentorship, and coaching, internships, digital skills training and job placement.
The foundation’s flagship program –– Hacklab Annual Hackathon, was grounded to a halt this year due to the effect of COVID-19.
However, executives of the foundation together with one of their longstanding, innovative partners of the Annual Hackathon – IBM, have come together to introduce to the Ghanaian people an educational campaign to help them improve upon their professional skills with this Webinar Series.
The series is a weekly event on Zoom with industry experts taking participants through various topics from thought leadership to data driven insight discussions.
