We are pleased to announce that the application for the Bolt Outternship Application for Kenyan Women 2023 is now open.
In the tech industry, women hold only 26.7% of jobs as of 2022, and the representation is even lower in top-management positions. To address this imbalance and support ambitious women entering the tech industry, Bolt is excited to announce the return of its internship programme, The Bolt Outternship, in Kenya. This initiative is designed to help women kick-start their careers and contribute to a more equal and diverse tech future.
Benefits of The Bolt Outternship
The Bolt Outternship offers a unique opportunity for women to gain hands-on experience in the tech industry. Here are some benefits of participating in the programme:

- Mentorship: Participants will have the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals in the tech industry.
- Career Advancement: The Outternship could be a stepping stone to a full-time position at Bolt, as was the case for some of the previous interns.
- Networking: Participants will have the chance to meet and network with other professionals in the tech industry.
