TechWomen 1st Day of Meetings in Johannesburg and Pretoria

IMG_7304

The TechWomen Delegation spent the morning of this first day of formal meetings at the The University of the Witwatersrand (“Wits”) campus speaking with US diplomatic, economic, cultural, and political staff about South Africa.  We then traveled by bus to Pretoria for a fascinating afternoon hosted by the African Development Bank discussing a wide variety of technical-women’s issues in Africa, including: access to technology, workforce capacity building, and leadership development.

There was interest both in the “TechWomen Emerging Leaders from Africa and the Middle East” posters and playing cards (now available for purchase thanks to Jessica creating our new ecommerce website!), and in the Mentoring Best Practices materials I have published. Eileen Brewer and I presented posters and card decks to our hosts at each of the sites we visited.
