TechWomen 2019: Now Accepting Applications


Written by Lynette Pieterse on Tuesday, 27 November 2018 09:43

TechWomen is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State that brings emerging women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Middle East together with their professional counterparts in the United States for a mentorship and exchange program based in San Francisco. During the five-week program, participants engage in project-based mentorships at leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

The 2019 program will include 108 women from Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe.

Applications are due January 16, 2019. We are looking for women who have demonstrated themselves as emerging leaders in their chosen profession, through their work experience, volunteer experience, community activities and education. A full list of the eligibility requirements is available on our website.

Please consider forwarding this message to your pertinent networks. You can also check out our Outreach Toolkit with flyers in multiple languages, as well as suggested tweets and social media posts.

Now entering its ninth year, TechWomen continues to be a transformational program for all involved and has inspired women to become active change makers in their communities. We thank you for your support, and please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

Best regards,
