Internationally-minded Yahoo! women: here’s an opportunity for you to help advance the cause of Women in Technology at a global level. TechWomen is a US State Department Initiative to connect technical women from the Middle East and North Africa with US-based mentors. It’s sponsored by Hillary Clinton and done in partnership with the Anita Borg Institute, organizers of the fabulous annual Grace Hopper Celebration. Yahoo! has been an active participant in the past – last year we had 5 wonderful mentors… and 1 mentee has since become a Yahoo! Come to an information session on Monday February 13, to learn how you can have a positive impact on a fellow tech woman’s career. There are two alternative information sessions: one in the morning and one in the evening. Please see below for details and RSVP by Thursday Feb 9th at http://techwomenmentorevent.eventbrite.com/ .
