Ahead of the Annual Digital African Woman Conference & Ball on July 28, Digital African Woman (DAW), which is a social enterprise dedicated to the innovation and support for female-led tech businesses across Africa and the Diaspora; launches its #SheIsDAW Community Award.Â #SheIsDAW Community Award is a social media campaign, which is awarded to a woman who is selected by her community to honor her contributions to its development and the improve the lives of those around her.
DAWâ€™s core values are centered around three pillars: supporting, engaging and empowering women. The #SheIsDAW campaign strives to provide a platform for women who are making noteworthy changes to their communities, standing as role models and pathfinders to both young girls and women. DAW would like to personally invite all community members in Nigeria to nominate such women as well as voting for their favorites. The campaign will run until July 25, 2018, and the winner will be announced at the Digital African woman Ball on July 28th, 2018;
