About TechWomen
Harnessing the power of business, technology and innovation, TechWomen brings emerging women leaders in technology sectors from the Middle East and Africa together with their counterparts for a professional mentorship and exchange program at leading companies in the United States.

Launched by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2011, TechWomen builds on her vision of “smart power diplomacy” embracing the full range of diplomatic tools, including technology, to bring people together for greater understanding and to empower women and girls worldwide.

TechWomen is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The Department of State is partnering with the Institute of International Education (IIE) to implement this program. Please contact us by email at with any questions you may have.

“TechWomen introduced me to many role models for women working in the technical field; I was so inspired when meeting with them. TechWomen also gave me to opportunity to visit the US for the first time. It was so different to visit the place, directly interacting with the people, rather than hearing about the culture from a distance. Thank you TechWomen, I had some of the happiest days ever in life because of you!”
– 2012 Participant from Egypt

Mentoring for TechWomen


Do you know if they are accepting applications for mentors for this?
I have an online sunglass company, organize TEDx events, and continue to mentor World Pulse writers through social media.

Hope 2013's 1,000,000,000 Rising is a major success for World Pulse Women!

Naturally grateful,
