TechWomen Visit US State in Washington DC

TechWomen 2016 in Washington DC

The TechWomen mentors and our mentees enjoyed our first full day of meetings in Washington DC today.  Speakers at the US State Department included TechWomen’s champion Evan Ryan (Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs), Catherine Novelli (Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment), and our beloved founder of TechWomen, Sheila Casey (Deputy Director, Office of Citizen Exchanges, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs).  We also heard from Dr. Jennifer Blum of the Association for Women in Science and Ziad Haider (Special Representative for Commercial and Business Affairs, US State Department).  Oracle gave us a lovely reception in their corporate townhouse this evening.
