Dear George Scharffenberger,

I am writing on behalf of the TechWomen program in hopes that you can
help us spread the word about this exciting opportunity. I have
contacted you in years past, and I am hopeful that you may once again
be willing to share this opportunity widely among your individual and
organizational contacts, especially women in your country and

TechWomen, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State, brings
emerging women leaders in science, technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM) from Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Middle
East together with their professional counterparts in the United
States for a mentorship and exchange program based in San Francisco.
During the five-week program, participants engage in project-based
mentorships at leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and
Silicon Valley.

The 2017 program will include 100 women from the following countries:
Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan,
Lebanon, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestinian Territories, Rwanda,
Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan,
Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe.

We are accepting applications for the 2017 program until January 17,
2017. We are looking for women who have demonstrated themselves as
emerging leaders in their chosen profession, through their work
experience, volunteer experience, community activities and education.
Please consider forwarding this message to your pertinent networks.
Flyers in multiple languages, as well as suggested tweets and social
media posts, are available here.

TechWomen’s mission is centered on empowering and supporting change
agents around the world. I deeply appreciate your help in sharing this
opportunity. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank
you for your support of global women leaders!

All the best,

Molly Pyle
