TechWomen preserve their voices through StoryCorps

During their visit in San Francisco, California, three TechWomen Emerging Leaders and their mentors engaged in an opportunity to participate in recording a piece of history at the Contemporary Jewish Museum for the StoryCorps project. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 40,000 interviews from nearly 80,000 participants.

TechWomen become the 2000th story recorded at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. The women sat within the booth and held conversations regarding their experiences during the project based mentorships—some of them even cried as they reminisced about their time together in the U.S. and the families they have left back home. StoryCorp provided the TechWomen an opportunity to share and preserve the moments during this trip that have changed their lives. The stories collected will be stored at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

TechWomen receive books for recording the 2000th story at the Contemporary Jewish Museum StoryCorp Booth.
