When we talk about the millennial we’re making reference to an age bracket of 18 – 34, it has been said that “Africa’s population as a whole is very young, with a 60% of the entire continent aged below 25, making it the youngest continent in the world.”

People in Africa are no longer tolerating corruption from their leaders, and they are demanding for youths to be included in the legislative and executive forms of governance, some countries with the help of private sectors are seeing to the inclusion of young persons in decision making process.

Organizations are trusting decision making process into the hands of young creative, investors are investing into ideas that has been design and develop by them, most young creative design and develop with their fellow peer groups in mind, this has seen to diversity in design and development.

Looking at the tech space, there have been lots of achievement and record set by these millennial, and as we celebrate the international woman day (#IWD), we are looking at how “The millennial woman has chosen to challenge” herself against corruption, gender inequality, and inclusion. These woman has chosen to fight against all odd facing the Africa mentality about woman been a house wife and are making impact in their various industry.
