A study conducted by University of Nairobi on gender segmentation showed the ratio of 1:5 in the discipline of ICT education.
Though the government has committed to the cause of gender equality by its continued investments in adequate ICT education and training, institutions of higher learning round the country show that there is a gender disparity. The concern was expressed by APC's Africa ICT Policy Monitor body as it may affect badly women's access to information. The measured access and lack of control over communications technology, the stereo-typical portrayal of gender roles, and women's limited access to professional careers and decision-making positions in general highlight the urgent need for African women to enter the debate on the development potential.
