TechWomen is a United States Department of State-funded program initiated in 2011. Its goal is to empower women and girls in the Middle East and North Africa through international exchanges. These exchanges build on “smart power,” embracing the full range of diplomatic tools, in this case technology, to bring people together for greater understanding and to empower women and girls worldwide.
