How Can I Help Your Application for the Techwomen Program?

Carolyn Seaman
Posted April 7, 2021 from Nigeria

I am a Techwomen Fellow who was blessed to experience the Techwomen Program in 2017. You can read the highlights of my Techwomen experience here. The Techwomen program helps emerging women leaders in the STEM industry to build their skills and expertise. The 5 weeks program exposes you to a combination of leadership workshops, a mentorship program where you are immersed in top tech companies in the Silicon Valley and learning sessions at the US Department of State. Throughout the program, you are paired with professional and cultural mentors, as well as impact coaches who support your experience closely. Together, the robust experience of the Techwomen program equips you to build capacity to infuse innovation into your work back home. If you are passionate about working in the STEM industry or are already actively working or volunteering in the STEM space, the Techwomen Program will give you that revolutionary experience to transform your work in your community. The Techwomen program is open to applicants from Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East.

I celebrate my Sister Ana Isabel who shared the Techwomen call for applications. I encourage you to read her post with the call for applications and consider putting in your application. I am happy to provide advice to World Pulse women applying for the Techwomen Program. I can share tips on what Techwomen is looking for in your application. I was considering hosting a Zoom session to share these tips and answer any questions that can support you in filling out your application. I will host the Zoom event at the request of those who want it. So, please, feel free to request that Zoom event if you want it and we can make it happen for April 16th, 2021 so you still have time to edit your applications before you turn them in. Please, note the deadline is May 5th, 2021. Sending you best wishes and looking forward to celebrating World Pulse women at Techwomen 2022!

Bravo to you, Dear Ana! You already did the heavy lifting on this one. And YOU inspired me to connect with your post and offer to help our World Pulse sisters with their applications. Thank you for your heart and passion to share such great opportunities with our women. I celebrate you!

Dear Carolyn:
We both know how many steps and efforts are required to make any project or endeavour successful...
The first step is the need, the passion or the idea to be pursued.
Making things happen is not easy at all, no matter where you are.
Neither is getting to know about grants opportunities.
Or grant writing.
Or project management.
So I am happy to see so many of us here, showing and building steps and skills for each other and for a better future.
Please put a link to your offer as a comment to my posting.
It can surely help prospective applicants to know about your valuable help.
All the best.

Thank you for sharing. It is a very meaningful and can help woman to polish their technology knowledge. Under the current pandemic condition, technology is essential allowing us to work from home and kids to continue their study at home.
Please keeps the good work on!
May Almighty God bless you!

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you so much for sharing your post about Tech Woman Program 2022.

I am not tech savy and wouldn't know where to begin.

I must congratulate Ana Isabel for taking participating the Tech Woman Programme.

Much respect to you both!

I think one of the most generous things to do is to share an experience you think can help others and offer to help others benefit from something you have. What a wonderful offer this is!
