Women in Technology
Women in Technology (WIT) for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region was funded by the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) of the U.S. Department of State, managed by the Institute of International Education (IIE) West Coast Center and implemented in collaboration with local partners in nine countries: Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Yemen. Since its launch in 2005, WIT trained over 7,000 women and built the capacity of more than 60 local women’s organizations in the Middle East and North Africa.
WIT took a two-fold approach to empowering women and expanding their participation in the workforce through specially tailored training activities.
The Women in Technology Program was sponsored by MEPI and the U.S. Department of State
