Ian Mangenga is the founder and CEO of Digital Girl Africa, a digital hub that bridges the gap between women in Africa and technology through critical digital skills training and tech career guidance.
She founded the company in 2018 after realising that she had lost passion for the work she was doing at the time. Ian started teaching herself digital skills and rendering those skills as a service to her peers.
Ian is a born and bred Johannesburger and now spends her time working between Cape Town and Maputo.
ImpactSA, together with Columba Leadership and Afrika Tikkun Services, have curated a series of conversations with African youth leaders and mentors, all of whom celebrate and inspire passion for the future of our continent – our youth.
Ian spoke to ImpactSA about her journey.
