TechWomen in Washington DC – Day 4

IMG_3526

Yesterday, the TechWomen visited the US State Department, including a formal lunch at the Benjamin Franklin State Dining Room. This is one of my favorite events during the TechWomen program!  I was honored to sit next to the fascinating Ambassador Catherine M. Russell of the US State Department Office of Global Women’s Issues at lunch.  I was very proud of Everwise Emerging Leaders Seham Al Jaafreh (Jordan) and Mai Temraz (Palestine) for both speaking to US government dignitaries and officials during group discussions.  Mai was one of two Emerging Leaders asked to be on the luncheon panel.  They have both started their post-TechWomen journeys to see some more of the USA: Seham to New York City, and Mai to Chicago.  I already miss them both very much.  Their intelligence, energy, and vibrant enthusiasm are an inspiration.
