Our Journey with HCDI Initiatives

Career Counselling and Industry Awareness Workshops

The Career Counseling, Industry Awareness and Empowerment workshop was set-up to help students understand the requisite skill set for various job functions through presentations by industry professionals, documentaries etc. They get to learn about career paths and related courses. Several workshops of this kind have held virtually and physically in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.

IBM - Analytics, Block chain, Mobile-App & Gaming/Cartoon

This provides a unique academic roadmap for faculty members and students, preparing them to succeed in demanding positions unique to the market. Participants are trained is Data analytics, cloud computing, Artificial intelligence etc.

Girls in STEM after School Programme

The low participation of girls and women in STEM fields can be observed at all levels of education, with the likelihood for female participation to decrease as the level of education rises. This is mirrored in the labour market where there are few women in STEM related careers, and women are largely absent in higher level managerial and decision-making positions. This event is targeted at challenging, mentoring and empowering the girl-child to become global leaders in STEM.
The Girls in STEM Initiative is a social impact and sustainability initiative with its full focus on creating an atmosphere where young women and young girls are brought together and exposed to hands-on learning, thereby helping them build skills in digital literacy, STEM, leadership, and entrepreneurship as well as mentoring. This project, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Quality Education and Gender Equality, is committed to empowering secondary school girls (ages 13 – 17) to take up Science-based subjects and choose STEM fields like Mobile Application, Website Development, Coding, Renewable Energy, Data Analytics, Robotics, Gaming, and 3D Animation etc. and so on as a future career in manufacturing and other STEM related companies which are already male dominated. It will also increase the number of young girls and women who are actively involved in STEM by also coaching and mentoring of girls by women.

The Drone Technology Workshop

The Nigerian Youth Drone Academy Workshop, a project birthed from the joint collaboration between the US Consulate General, Lagos and the US-based Global Air Drone Academy, and this session for teenagers and students of public and private schools in Lagos State was hosted by the Cedar STEM & Entrepreneurship Hub of Lonadek on Monday.
It exposed the students to the many potentials drone technology offers and the workings of the drone; helping them get conversant with it and removing the initial shyness and fear which sometimes comes with exposure to new technology.

Women & Girls in STEM

The low participation of girls and women in STEM fields can be observed at all levels of education, with the likelihood for female participation to decrease as the level of education rises. This is mirrored in the labor market where there are few women in STEM related careers, and women are largely absent in higher level managerial and decision-making positions. However, gender differences in STEM starts with the performance of secondary school students in STEM-related subjects such as mathematics and science. To this end, We work tirelessly to involve and encourage more girls in STEM through our various programmes, one of which is the ‘Girls in STEM Day out’
