Tech for Good
Tired of "Manels"? Crowdsourcing for Better Representation

Short thesis

Female and minority representation is central to every democracy. However, we have a long way to go: in Ghana, less than 11% of MPs are women (30 out of 275).
Together we explore the diversity in the room, the equality challenges we face as a society, and explore how Tech for Good can create change that makes the world a better place. Are you in?


Give us 30 minutes of your time and we will show you
1. why diversity is a critical issue for Ghana and
2. how together with CrowdCompetence you can correct the imbalances of representation in media, culture, business, and other contexts.

We believe that when it comes to including competent women and people from other underrepresented groups, excuses that claim that “there just weren’t any”, are no longer good enough.

CrowdCompetence enables organizations, companies, and journalists to find alternatives who will contribute to more equal representation when looking for experts, lecturers, directors, comedians, DJs, helicopter pilots, clowns, or any other areas – obscure or mainstream – of expertise.

CrowdCompetence utilizes the powerful dynamics of crowdsourcing to address this problem. Our vision is a society where people are not defined by their gender, origin, ethnicity, physical ability, age or any other categories that constrain our contributions to society.
