Since 2012, alumni from the TechWomen and TechGirls programs have become a robust group making great advancements for women in STEM. The TechWomen and TechGirls Clubs in each of participating countries provide a forum for mentoring and career counseling. The clubs currently operate in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Tajikistan, Tunisia, and Uzbekistan. Virtual and real time meet ups help club members collaborate. The Clubs offer:
- Professional and peer mentors for community projects,
- Motivational speakers for career fairs or speaker panels,
- Volunteer opportunities for TechGirls at events organized by TechWomen,
- Bi-monthly or quarterly virtual meet ups: TechWomen share insights with TechGirls on topics such as community service, interviewing tips, social media storytelling, education paths, work/life balance, making your voice heard, networking.
What are some of the highlights from our clubs? We are executing Tech Meet-Ups at schools and universities across the MENA and Central Asian regions, workshops on women in STEM and STEM careers, information sessions on the TechWomen and TechGirls programs and more!
