The Upanzi Digital Public Goods Webinar Series is a monthly webinar, held on the last Wednesday of each month. Speakers span government, academia, and the nonprofit sector, and will speak on topics relevant to the digital transformation of Africa, including (but not limited to) digital public goods and infrastructure, digital financial inclusion, and security and privacy of digital services.

The series is organized as part of the Upanzi Network’s effort to build a skilled digital public goods workforce in Africa and to foster education and public awareness, training, public access to information, and participation in secure, fair, and sustainable digital public goods.
