Techwomen is an Initiative of the US department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, which empowers, Connect and support Women around the world, who are leaders in STEM fields. By STEM, you should understand: Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. As a Techwoman Emerging Leader from Cameroon, I (Dorothée Danedjo Fouba) really appreciate this opportunity in USA, with amazing and wonderful Techwomen mentors and mentees.
I’m hosted by a big Open Source company in the world: Mozilla Corporation. Every weeks of this month in San Francisco and Mountain View Offices, I’ll improve my skills in Open source, digital tools, webmarketing, managing a Tech community and more interesting things there. I began by learning how to blog with The Open Standard platform, one of new babies products of Mozilla for Journalists and Blogger. At the end of this program, I expect to be more professional than now in STEM fields and want to come back to my country with a prototype of a multimedia teaching platform I have in Project since 2013. A platform which can help African journalists, Communicators and Startup-ers to have some free and open source tutorials and online tools for their work.
