Techwomen USA

The visit of the Techwomen USA Delegation to a STEM school in Egypt in 2018, facilitated by Al Alfi Foundation, represents a significant step in promoting gender diversity in STEM fields. This initiative aligns with the broader goals of the TechWomen program, an initiative by the US State Department to empower and support women leaders in STEM from various regions including Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East.
The focus of the delegation’s visit was on introducing young girls to STEM disciplines and encouraging them to overcome stereotypes and pursue careers in these fields. By offering workshops and hands-on activities, the delegation aimed to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world applications, providing the girls with both technical and practical skills. This approach is critical in empowering young women and equipping them with the necessary tools to succeed in STEM professions.
