Phase3 Telecom, West Africa’s largest independent fibre optic infrastructure, and telecommunications services provider has partnered the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Region 8 to strengthen entrepreneurial propensities in Nigerian youths.
Stanley Jegede, chief executive officer of Phase3 said supporting IEEE Region 8 biennial Africa Student and Young Professional Congress 2017 effectively compliments one of Phase3 corporate social responsibility objectives, which is to build IT based partnerships that champion the socio-economic transformation of youths in local communities.
Jegede said that proudly associating with ASYPC rides on its consistent focus of providing an inspiring hub for students, and young professional members to interact; develop soft skills; expand their knowledge of emerging technologies; and discuss unique ways to tackle individual organizational, and country challenges.
He affirms that he is particularly thrilled at the huge potential of the congress being the first of its kind in Africa – to churn out more next generation innovators that will transform Africa, and global IT/engineering landscape from 2017 onwards. The partnership will through technology drive novel development programmes – in collaboration with cross sectional African Student and Young Professional Congress.
Abdullateef Aliyu, IEEE ASYPC congress chair says its 2017 edition is set to gather over 200 participants in a series of specialized workshops, presentations, and lectures that will stimulate discuss and solutions on tackling economic hardships; dearth of opportunities, and the rising lethargic disposition of students and young professionals.
Formed in 1963, and dubbed as the ‘voice’ for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe – IEEE is the world’s largest professional, and technical organization that is dedicated to providing its members as well as affiliates with capacity building opportunities in technological innovation, and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
