The USAID Economic Security Program launches the Grace Hopper Award Program in partnership with TBC Bank, Mashav Center and the Embassy of Israel in Georgia, and UN Women.
The Grace Hopper Award Program recognizes local girls and women in the information and communication technology (ICT) industry and puts a spotlight on those organizations and initiatives that are making strides towards promoting women’s increased participation in the ICT sector.
The Award Program bears the name of Grace Hopper, a prominent 20th-century American computer scientist, United States computer programming pioneer.
Through public nominations, Grace Hopper Award Program will acknowledge outstanding individuals, programs, and organizations in six categories.
The winners of the Award Program will be announced by June 2021 and will get sponsorship to participate in a two-week study program to Israel during fall 2021. TBC Bank and UN Women will provide the winners of certain categories with the capacity-building programs and will support their professional growth and/or business expansion.
