The U.S. Embassy in Beirut is pleased to announce the 2016 TechWomen program, a five-week program in the U.S. to encourage and support women engaged in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields from the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The program will take place over the course of five weeks beginning in September 2016. Participants will work on specific projects with their American mentors at technology and innovation companies in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley.
