After the Emerging Leaders return home, mentors are invited to travel to Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East to participate in the TechWomen delegation trips. Bringing the program full-circle, the delegation trips are vital to the growth and sustainability of the TechWomen network. The delegation focuses on expanding networks of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), creating and strengthening partnerships between the region and the United States, encouraging girls to pursue STEM careers, and nurturing relationships between mentors and TechWomen alumnae.
Delegations visit non-governmental organizations, private and public enterprises, universities, incubators, and innovation hubs. Together with alumnae, the delegates from the United States learn about the STEM ecosystem in-country, explore the situation of women and girls, and connect with prospective TechWomen applicants.
