A friend just forwarded this message from Beth Garriott of the Institute of International Education:
The TechWomen program, managed by the Institute of International Education and funded by the Department of State, is currently looking for women living in the Bay Area who are passionate about Africa to get involved as Cultural Mentors for our program in October. I’ve included more details below and a flyer attached… The application deadline is August 1st.
Here’s the flyer.
What is the Oakland Maker Space?
Founded and led by people of color, LOL! — Liberating Ourselves Locally — is an Oakland Maker Space that works for a future where members of our community can be involved in all aspects of creating things that sustain us, such as food, clothing, energy, technology, shelter, and art.
We are a local movement whose primary purpose is to serve our communities:
We provide space and resources where community folks can learn, play, experiment, and hone their skills while working on projects that they love and enjoy.
