Rise of Women Leaders around the GlobeEvent Goal:
The “Rise of Women Leaders around the Globe” event is hosted by the Women in Localization organization, in cooperation with TechWomen, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
The aim of this event is to provide a forum for women from different cultures and backgrounds to get to know each other, share lessons from their personal and professional experiences, discuss current and future market trends, brainstorm professional gaps and opportunities and ultimately, develop strong and enduring alliances and partnerships to address common challenges.
Our panelists will discuss topics such as their career paths, how their culture and language has impacted their professional lives, who they look to for inspiration, and more
The Women in Localization organization is honored to welcome the emerging women leaders from the Middle East and North Africa, participants of the 2012 TechWomen program, as well as their US-based cultural and professional mentors as guests of honor at this joint event.
