On February 5, Deputy of Public Affairs Officer Scott Bolz visited the Level-Up classes at the Iraq Space Center. A seven-month virtual program, Level-Up prepares Iraqi women currently enrolled in university or who are recent university graduates to enter the private sector. Funded by PAS, this virtual workforce development program provided 100 participating students from across Iraq with English language instruction, computer courses and management training. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase economic opportunities for women and make them more competitive for higher education awards.
