We published our debut list of TLEW in 2015. It has drawn huge attention in the country and abroad and put together stories of women who are breaking barriers and contributing to building a better Bangladesh.
TLEW brings together best women technology leaders of Bangladesh in order to inspire more women to come forward and play their role in technology, connect them with each other and help collaboration happen with a vision to build a better tomorrow.
