In celebration of International Women’s Day, the Paga team held an event to share real world experiences, practices and approaches on how young Women could succeed in their career. It was a 2 hour-long session attended by 10 young women who had the opportunity to learn and interact. In line with the Women’s Day theme – #BeBoldForChange, the event had two panel discussions around topics such as; Breaking barriers in career growth and Evolving as a woman in technology.
