In about three months, Emerging Leaders (ELs) representing 19 countries across Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East will arrive in San Francisco to participate in the 2016 TechWomen program. We are looking forward to welcoming this outstanding cohort of 90 emerging women leaders in STEM – the top 4% of more than 2,318 applicants. Stay tuned to our Instagram and Twitter as we introduce the ELs beginning this week! Follow the hashtag #ELofTheDay.
