It would like to stimulate the next generation of women leaders by providing them access and opportunity to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and become role models for women and girls in their communities.

TechWomen Mentorship Program

TechWomen is an initiative of the U.S. Department to bring emerging women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics 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.
