NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK FOUNDATION’S 7TH ANNUAL GLOBAL MARATHON


FOR, BY AND ABOUT WOMEN IN ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY

set for March 7-12, 2011

Africa/Middle East Invitation

Engineers can have great positive impact on their communities by using their technical experience in
community service activities. Many engineers from all over the globe are involved in events or
projects that benefit their societies. That’s why we thought of this topic to be the main idea of the
Middle East/ Africa region’s interactions. But is a woman engineer more active in community service?
How can being a woman engineer help make a difference in your community or society? We can give
you the answer after March 12, 2011!

Are you a woman engineer or working in the ICT domain?

Have you ever been involved in community service activities?

Would you like to share your experience with the whole world and tell young girls that engineering
can be fun too?

Do you have any idea/topic in Engineering or ICT that you like to tell us about?

Now you have the chance! Send a video, audio, PowerPoint presentation, or join us live!
