Emerging Leaders in STEM from Pakistan Made it to TechWomen USA

A powerful cohort of 7 women in STEM from Pakistan made it to TechWomen fellowship 2022 held in San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. Raising the flag high and shining brighter in the fellowship this year are the proud daughters of the homeland making a mark in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

For our readers who don’t know much about the TechWomen fellowship program, here is a quick introduction for you.

TechWomen is a professional exchange that directly supports the U.S. foreign policy goal of advancing the status of women and girls worldwide and promotes development in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to enable women to reach their full potential. TechWomen, managed by IIE (Institute of International Education), is an intensive professional exchange offered by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) spanning five weeks of mentoring focused on promoting collaboration in science and technology.

More than 4600 women in STEM applied for the program from 21 countries, and around 112 made it to the final selection. We’re proud to share that seven are from Pakistan, considered one of the biggest cohorts this year.

“I am thrilled and honored to be a part of TechWomen professional exchange this year. It is indeed one of its kind opportunities to connect, learn and network with some of the best mentors from the companies in Silicon Valley. Not only this but meeting ELs from fellow countries is also an exciting experience,” says Ayesha Zaman Hammaad – one of the emerging leaders of TechWomen 22.

To satisfy your curiosity, we’ll share a brief intro of the impressive cohort for this year that includes:

Ayesha Zaman Hammaad – founder Skills Todo and chief digital officer Datics AI, Anum Naseem – program manager Circle Women, Warda Shafiq – founder Reduce and Recycle, Abir Raza – GM Business incubation institute of space and technology, Sadia Sheikh – STEAM coordinator Dawood public school, Roshaan Saeed – Senior product architect Afiniti, Madeeha Khan – Senior transformation project manager British American Tobacco PLC.

We congratulate the cohort for this achievement and wish them nothing but the best for their stay in San Francisco and make the most out of this lifetime opportunity.
