TechWomen at US State Department

IMG_6945

The TechWomen visited the US State Department and New America Foundation yesterday here in Washington DC. It was interesting to hear about the electronic social media policies and practices of the White House from New Media Director Macon Phillips, manager of WhiteHouse.Gov, and of the State Department from Victoria Esser (Deputy Assistant Secretary of State). At the New America Foundation, we enjoyed a panel including representatives from the United National mHealth Alliance, Grameen Foundation, and the Innovation Labs at The World Bank.

A group of us went for a long dinner last night at Zaytinya which features wonderful food from Greece, Turkey and Lebanon.
