WWCode Global Leadership Director to Embark on 5-day Leadership Tour to Speak With Influential Women From Across Israeli Society


San Francisco, CA - August 22nd, 2017— Women Who Code Global Leadership Director Joey Rosenberg will be representing Women Who Code (WWCode), the world’s largest non-profit supporting women in technology, at this year’s Project “Together,” a diplomacy and leadership initiative funded by Ben Gurion University, which consists of a five-day tour of Israel with participants interacting with top people from across Israeli society in order to form a worldwide network for the inspiration and empowerment of women.

As Global Leadership Director, Joey Rosenberg is responsible for supporting Women Who Code’s more than 500 volunteer leaders and 60 Networks located in cities around the world. During her participation in this project, she will act as an ambassador for the organization, emphasizing the importance of supporting career aged women in tech while also laying the groundwork for future WWCode expansion within Israel.

The trip will take place from August 19th - 25th. In addition to Rosenberg, participants will consist of influential women from countries and industries around the world, including Holly Brockwell, editor of Gadgette, Marjolijn Kamphuis, founder of OK GO, and Hannah Henshall, Co-Founder of If Not Now Digital. The tour itself will span the breadth of Israel, from Tel Aviv to the Negev, and members of the party will have the chance to speak with some of the nation’s top women in culture, politics, sports, media, economy, strategic affairs and more.

“I am thrilled to connect with other women from around the world, to explore leadership through this unique lens, and I look forward to leveraging the experience to enrich Women Who Code’s leadership program for engineers,” said Joey Rosenberg about this opportunity. “I have high hopes for this trip and believe that together, WWCode and Project “Together” can do a lot to support the goals of women around the world.”
