U.S. National Commissioner for UNESCO, Dr. Sheree Wen, met recently with senior Microsoft management in Seattle to discuss the company's newest software innovations for education and art.  Dr. Wen is also president and chief executive officer of the Wen Technology Group.

Dr. Wen met with Josh Rice, Microsoft's Senior Director for Worldwide Technology, and Mr. Eric Basha, Microsoft's Managing Director for Government in their Worldwide Public Sector on August 22.  

David Ostroff from the U.S. Mission to UNESCO in Paris also participated in the meeting.  Dr. Wen has been named as the Chairman of the newly formed Advisory Council for the International Center for Women Artists, and has been working to develop the Center's virtual presence.  

The Amman-based International Center for Women Artists, strongly supported by the U.S., will be formally approved as a UNESCO Category II center at the upcoming UNESCO General Conference in November.  Through its website, ICWA will have a major virtual presence, permitting visitors from all over the world to visit, engage in and learn about the incredible work of women artists from around the world.
