The TechWomen US State Department mentoring program based in the Silicon Valley for STEM women in the Middle East and Africa had its kickoff event last night. It was generously hosted by Juniper Networks in their impressive but really-very-hard-to-find Aspiration Dome in Sunnyvale, California. The TechWomen panel was interesting and I enjoyed staffing one of the tables to answer questions from potential-newbies. Such a joy to see so many mentor alumnae as well as new faces!
