Moderated by Program Director Heather Ramsey, the following panel discussion highlights the work of the Institute of International Education’s “Women in Technology program” focused on the regions of the Middle East and North Africa. The program, known by its acronym WIT, provides women in the MENA region access and opportunity to enhance their marketable skills and gain economic independence thru careers in technology. Since its launch in 2005, WIT has trained tens of thousands of women and supported hundreds of local women’s organizations with the goals of increasing women’s participation in tech as well as building pluralistic, democratic societies thru civil society strengthening activities.
