Looking down the pipeline of women in tech, the picture isn’t rosy. Of the STEM disciplines, tech is the only one where the participation of women has actually decreased in the last 20 years.

She Leads Africa, a community that helps young African women achieve their professional dreams, in partnership with beauty brand, Dark & Lovely Africa, has just opened applications for the 2017 Dark & Lovely x SLA Beauty Accelerator.
