Changemaker Leticia Brenyah served as a panelist at the Clinton Global Initiative on Tuesday. (You can find her talk here.) "My country will be a better place when more women have access to technologies," she said. "When women thrive economically they improve their lives, families and country." Brenyah was a finalist in the Women | Tools | Technology challenge launched by Changemakers and Exxon Mobil. Yesterday, Exxon committed $1 million at the Clinton Global Initiative to further advance women economically in the developing world. "The programs identified through the 2009 commitment use technology to improve the lives of women in developing countrues," said Suzanne M. McCarron, general manager, Exxon Mobil public and government affairs. "By further supporting these programs, we will be advancing technologies that are proven to create more economic opportunities for women and, as a result, strengthen their communities."
