Event Details

Technology entrepreneur Roya Mahboob was named by TIME as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013. A successful tech entrepreneur, her Afghan Citadel Software Company employs 25 people, 18 of whom are women.  In addition, she is building 40 free Internet-enabled classrooms across Afghanistan to allow more than 160,000 female students to connect to the world.

Roya also founded the Women's Annex Foundation to train women and children in digital literacy, empowering them to create a sustainable economic model for themselves and their families. The foundation is currently operating in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, and Mexico with the goal of expanding globally.  

Dana Nachman, documentary filmmaker and journalist, will interview Roya.  She has won numerous prizes including 3 Emmy Awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award, and the Jury Award for Best Documentary at the Washington DC Independent Film Festival. 

This is a unique opportunity to meet Roya, learn about the remarkable work she is doing and how you might be able to help. All proceeds of this event are tax-deductible donations to the Foundation. (You will receive a receipt from the Foundation).

Because IBM security requires participant names- advance registration is required. 

Seating is limited.
