When a team of Saudi female engineering students won first place at a global competition given by Procter & Gamble in 2018, they proved their talents in what is otherwise considered to be a predominantly male field. However, according to BBC.com that part of the world still does not allow women to apply for passports, travel abroad, get married, open a bank account, start a certain business, get elective surgery, or even leave prison without explicit permission from the men in their lives. While there continue to be slight pay inequality issues that are currently being challenged and discussed in the United States, conditions for women in business, and especially in technology and computer science fields are not only accepted but encouraged, by the growing financial and political communities like Silicon Valley.
200 Financed O-1 Visas for Women In Tech
In 2019, in addition to the great strides we already make to assist talented individuals in getting their O-1 visa, PassRight’s team is planning to finance two hundred O-1 visas for women in the tech industry. Immigrating to the United States can be scary and challenging, but despite the continued debate on this topic, President Trump tweeted in January 2019, “we want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S…” With over one million job opportunities opening up over the next few years in the computer science industry, there are not nearly enough American citizens to fill those positions.
O-1 Visa Empowers Women in the U.S.
As PassRight continues to support diversity in the workforce, we find it inspiring to encourage the women engineers, many of whom are the first engineers in their family, and especially the first female engineers in their family, to join the strongest and fastest growing economy in the world. Despite the limitations that the many governments place on women, Passright will work with you to fill out all the necessary forms, and walk you through the process of immigrating to the United States where women not only have the ability to pursue their career goals, but the freedom to live a fulfilling and carefree life.

While reading the qualification for an O-1 visa may make the process sound daunting or nearly impossible, just entering and placing in competitions like the Procter and Gamble one mentioned above, goes a long way in meeting the requirement for an O-1 visa.
