SANBI post-doctoral research fellow selected for USA Techwoman programme

Author: SANBI

Next generation of female leaders in Science

SANBI post-doctoral research fellow Dr Sarah Mwangi has been invited to attend the Techwoman programme programme in the United States in October, 2015. This programme is an initiative of the US Department of State, launched by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011, and aims to empower, connect, and support the next generation of female leaders in Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) from Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East.  Tech Woman is a five-week program that includes mentorships and professional exchanges at leading companies in Silicon Valley, California and concludes with workshops, networking events and meetings in Washington, D.C. The program provides participants with the access and opportunity they need to advance their careers, pursue their dreams, and to, in turn, inspire other women and girls in their communities.
