Secretary Clinton to Honor “TechWomen” July 6 at U.S. Department of State

Office of the Spokesperson

Washington, DC
June 30, 2011

On Wednesday, July 6, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will honor 37 women from the Middle East and North Africa and their American mentors who participated in TechWomen, an initiative that harnesses the power of technology and international exchanges as a means to empower women and girls worldwide.

The event will take place at approximately 12 p.m. in the Benjamin Franklin Room at the Department of State. The event will be streamed live on www.state.gov.

TechWomen, which Secretary Clinton first announced during the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship in the spring of 2010, brought 37 women from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and the Palestinian Territories to the United States for a five-week mentorship with their American counterparts at 24 U.S.-based technology companies. Later this year, U.S. mentors will travel to the Middle East and North Africa region to conduct workshops for women in the technology sector and young girls who have expressed an interest in pursuing a tech-based career.

Twenty four technology companies in Silicon Valley and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area are serving as mentors. They include: Adobe Systems, Inc., AT&T, Carnegie Mellon University – Silicon Valley, Cisco Systems, Ericsson, Facebook, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Huawei, Intel Corporation, Internet Systems Consortium, Juniper Networks, LikeList, mPay Connect, NetApp, Newcomb Anderson McCormic, Northgate Environment Management, Inc., Parallel Earth, SAP Labs, Symantec, ThoughtWorks, Yahoo!, and ZaReason.

These are outtakes from today’s press briefing.

TRANSCRIPT:

12:43 p.m. EDT

MS. NULAND: Good afternoon, everybody. I hope you all enjoyed America’s birthday yesterday. Sorry for the delay. We had a little technical difficulty with the audio today. A couple of short things at the top, and then we’ll go to your questions. First, to confirm that Secretary Clinton will meet tomorrow with Peruvian President-elect Humala. We very much welcome his visit to the United States and look forward to continuing to strengthen our ties with Peru.

QUESTION: The Dalai Lama just arrived in DC in the last hour. Are there plans for meetings here, or if you could, at the White House?

MS. NULAND: He – the Dalai Lama is in Washington for the Kalachakra religious ceremony. Our Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs, Maria Otero, is also designated as our special coordinator for Tibet issues. She’s going to meet him at the airport. She’s going to see him later today. And with regard to any other meetings in Washington, I don’t have anything to announce at the moment.

I cannot imagine that there would not be a meeting between them.   I hope we see pictures. This is from his last visit, February 18, 2010.

These are absolutely charming. They appear to have a lovely relationship. I am happy to see that the Secretary of State is not trying to obscure this meeting in any way.

Well I do not know where she got it, since it is not at the State Department Photo Gallery nor on their Flickr account, but earlier, I said,  “There are no photos to prove it.”   (Meaning that they had met.)   Apparently there is this one that Stacy found.

There were no public remarks.  As you know, if you read the Daily Appointments Schedule,  released a little after noon today by the State Department and re-posted below within minutes, after he left his meeting with President Obama at the White House, the Dalai Lama went to the State Department to meet with Secretary Clinton, and the meeting was closed to the press.   Here is the Dalai Lama as he left the White House today.
