Join us for a UN Women workshop on harnessing local innovations in tech and entrepreneurship for global impact.

On August 27, Silicon Valley UN Women will discuss how local initiatives in entrepreneurial education and renewable energy can empower women across the globe. 
 
Get inspiration from leading experts in renewable energy and cleantech, then break out into small groups to dive deeper and brainstorm how we can apply these learnings to UN Women initiatives abroad.
 
And what’s an event at LinkedIn without a chance to hear from experts on how to sharpen your resume and personal brand? Come early for personalized tips on how to cater your resume for your professional goals.
 
Throughout the event, enjoy traditional Syrian food from Old Damascus Fare, a small catering business run by one of the first refugee families to resettle in Oakland from the conflict in Syria. Come support Rawaa Kasedah, Mohammed Aref Rawas and their four children and hear their story.
