US Dept of State Techwomen Program Participant Presentations

Seminar Abstract 

Please join us as Berkeley Lab's TechWomen Emerging Leaders, representing Pakistan, Nigeria, Tunisia, Lebannon, and Turkmenistan, present on a variety of initiatives - from promoting STEM education among youth to biogas from sewage water, from GIS/ spatial analysis to Geophysics and Machine Learning. In this seminar, each Emerging Leader will talk about her background, her experience under this program, and share her ideas to address some of the challenges in her home country. Hear about their incredible experiences and Berkeley Lab's support for STEM around the world.

TechWomen is an Initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The program’s mission is to empower, connect and support the next generation of women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) 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 brings emerging women leaders 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. TechWomen provides participants access to networks, resources and knowledge to empower them to reach their full potential. Through this program, Berkeley Lab is hosting these six Emerging Leaders.
