We're thrilled to announce the inaugural Creative Commons Salon in Nairobi, organized in partnership with Creative Commons Kenya and the Center for Intellectual Property and Information Technology, the School of Open Kenya, and Akili Dada.
The event will be held on Thursday, June 6th from 5-7:30pm at the iHub. Light refreshments will be available.
We will be talking about using tech as a democratizing tool. Among the areas of focus will be how to deploy tech to increase gender equality and equity.

Bitange Ndemo, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information and Communications
Judith Owigar, President of Akirachix, a network of women in technology
