@kofiemeritus: Did you face any challenges as a woman and your involvement with ICT?
@maureenagena: Of course I did and I still do. The challenges started way back from school with intimidation from fellow students especially the male ones who kept on reassuring me that Science courses are not meant for girls. At the workplace, many employers do not have confidence in female IT staff and they always doubt their ability to deliver on their own without help from a man.
