TechWomen Program

Eileen Brewer and Cathy Simpson recently finished their TechWomen program that included a series of over 30 talks, workshops, and sessions on topics relating to women in STEM and entrepreneurship from February 26 to March 12 in Lahore and Islamabad, Pakistan. The TechWomen program is part of the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs' initiative to increase technical literacy and STEM training among women across the world. The program’s participants were able to discuss new frontiers in STEM education and practices and how best to support women pursuing STEM education or entrepreneurship. Brewer and Simpson also hosted 5 separate programs at various institutions across Lahore and Islamabad, including a panel discussion at the Government College University, Lahore that featured 4 prominent Vice-Chancellors. These additional programs allowed the speakers to explore additional topics such as cybersecurity and STEM education for younger students. Participants in these programs were excited to be able to use their knowledge and spread information at their institutions to further the reach of this program.A group photograph of participants in theTechWomen Program
