Makers: Women Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

September 27, 2017 - October 3, 2017

CCWA is excited to be hosting 10 Egyptian educators and technology leaders who are promoting the Maker Movement in Egypt. This project focuses on highlighting how the Maker Movement encourages collaboration and empowerment of women in schools and businesses. As the home of notable makerspaces, including Think[Box] at Case Western Reserve University, visitors will have an opportunity to learn how local inventors and entrepreneurs have developed the infrastructure to make science, technology, and business development accessible to women and girls, as well as the general public.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
