TechWomen brings emerging women leaders in STEM from Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East together with their professional counterparts in the United States for a mentorship and exchange program.
Participating in the five-week TechWomen program, launched in 2011, gives women from Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East “access to networks, resources and knowledge to empower them to reach their full potential in STEM.”
