October Event: Emerging Women Tech Leaders from Middle East & Africa
What would you like to know about emerging women leaders working in technology in the Middle East and Africa?
Come hear the about the experiences of some amazing tech women from Africa and the Middle East. They are part of a program that has brought 78 women from 16 countries to work one one-month projects at various technical companies in the greater Bay Area. They are here as guests of the US Dept of State (thanks to Hillary Clinton’s vision when she was Secretary of State), involved in a program designed to develop women in those regions for leadership positions in tech firms in their home countries.
