Unstoppable Women of Web3 (Unstoppable WoW3), a diversity and education organization working to level the playing field in Web3, has committed to educating six million women in Africa about Web3 and the metaverse over the course of the next five years.
African Leadership Group, Africa Women CEOs Network, Chipper Cash, NFT Domains, Polygon Labs, Sankore 2.0, Unstoppable Domains, Uoma Beauty, and the Virtual Brand Group are just a few of the partners with whom the program is being launched. In order to onboard more women, the entities are giving away free domain names to certain individuals throughout the course of the following 30 days.
We need to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table. Sandy Carter, the founder of Unstoppable Women of Web3, as well as COO and Head of Business Development at Unstoppable Domains, stated that although Africa currently has one of the fastest growing Web3 sectors, it is not immune from the gender equality issues we see around the world. “Empowerment starts with knowledge, therefore we’re happy to spearhead this campaign to educate six million more African women on the metaverse and Web3, ” Carter continued.
Decentralized networks built on Web3 are the foundation for technologies like blockchain. Because there aren’t as many women in this field, there is a movement to recruit more of them.
African women will now have the opportunity to work in one of the most rapidly expanding sectors of the global economy, according to Anino Emuwa, managing director of Avandis Consulting and founder of the Africa Women CEOs Network. With this new effort, African women may learn about a developing profession and take part in shaping its future. The IT and Web3 industries have long struggled with diversity and a lack of representation.
Unstoppable Women of Web3 has undertaken educational programs in the past to recruit women from underrepresented communities to Web3. In addition to its African efforts, the organization has declared its intention to inform and enroll more than five million South American women into Web3 by the year 2030.
