As a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum, Ivy Barley is currently shaping a world where more African women will be daring enough to lead in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
She co-founded Developers in Vogue to train African females in the latest technologies and connect them to real-time projects and jobs. Developers in Vogue has been featured on various national and international media platforms including BBC, The Borgen Magazine and Deutsche Welle.
Ivy currently holds an MPhil. in Mathematical Mathematical Statistics. In 2017, she was named as one of the Top 50 Most Influential Young Ghanaians. Growing up, I loved the classroom. I remember gathering the neighbourhood children to teach them Science and Mathematics for free. In recent times, I have been able to increase my capacity to even do more because I believe education is the most powerful tool to transform lives. In 2017, I co-founded Developers in Vogue, an organization that provides training, mentorship and job placement/business incubation for African women in tech. The organization has grown to become one of the leading tech communities in Ghana. I currently work as a Technical Program Manager and Data Scientist with the Open Education Analytics team at Microsoft. Open Education Analytics is an open source project where we collaborate with education systems across the world to develop modern data intelligence capabilities.
