African data scientists: An untapped talent pool

Link visible for attendees

Africa's fast-growing, tech-savvy talent pool is one of the region's biggest assets. When it comes to data science, there is untapped potential in the form of highly talented African graduates with master's degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, and Statistics among others thanks to institutions like our partners African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) and online data science learning platform DataQuest. One challenge that remains, however, is the lack of access and barriers that many talented Africans face when it comes to finding spaces and opportunities to put their data science knowledge into practice.

With the future of work evolving and remote working becoming the norm for many organisations, new doors have opened for companies to look beyond their borders and find exceptional data science talent in Africa. African data scientists have the potential not only to add value through their technical skills, but they also bring a unique worldview and life experiences which companies can leverage to unlock innovation and increase the global appeal of their products and services.

At Ishango.ai, we are working to bridge the gap between global companies and African data science talent by providing skill-building, infrastructure and support.
Join us at our next event where we will discuss how best companies can support and work with African data science talent to achieve their full potential and drive growth.
