Celebrating Inspirational Women in Technology: Women’s History Month

The women leading and innovating in technology across the world impact our lives on a daily basis and are working hard on shaping the future for the better. Even in trying times like this we can’t forget the positive contributions that woman have made and continue to make in our communities and beyond. That is why it’s important to take the time to recognize Women’s History Month as an important cornerstone in our industry.

While women still only represent a tiny percentage of the technology world, women are making big strides in the tech field, and it’s important that we help keep this trend going. Some of the latest stats:

Women dominate the professional workforce.

  • 56% are women

BUT men still dominate the tech workforce…

  • Only 5% of tech start-ups are owned by women

LUCKILY women are breaking down the door…

  • 18-20% Engineering students are women. A huge increase over the last 25 years!

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we invite you to join us as we celebrate women who are making history today and who strive to innovate, inspire, and lead with technology.
