About Us

SheHacks KE is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2016 by Laura Tich and Evelyn Kilel, with the aim of providing women in cybersecurity a platform to interact and help each other grow professionally in a healthy environment.

SheHacks KE is a community of Women in Cybersecurity from various backgrounds and counties in Kenya coming together to purposefully provide for women in cybersecurity an avenue of interaction, growth in knowledge and skill set and successfully pave a path for them in the cybersecurity industry.

The need to establish the initiative came about upon realization of a lack of female representation in the industry, notably in the workplace and at conferences. The objective of establishing SheHacks_KE was to provide a platform for women to interact, learn and grow together as information security learners and professionals.
