Calling Women in Tech! Applications are now open for the 2018 TechWomen Programme. TechWomen empowers, connects and supports the next generation of women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East by providing them the access and opportunity needed to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and inspire women and girls in their communities.
The 2018 TechWomen program will occur over five weeks from September – October 2018. It will begin with four weeks in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley for project-based mentorships at host companies. It will conclude in Washington, D.C. with one week of meetings and special events.
TechWomen participants are women who are rising in their professional careers in STEM fields and who already are – or show promise of being – role models for others in their countries, particularly for women and girls. The TechWomen initiative will identify 100 women in STEM fields from countries in Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East to participate in the 2018 program.
