Is peer pressure the answer to addressing the gender gap in tech? | InsightaaS – Insight as a Service

IB holds Women in Analytics Network and Leadership Symposium to explore the persistence of gendered experience in ICT.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.insightaas.com

Melissa Treier, North American VP, product sales and strategy for Information Builders, began the session by highlighting a long legacy of famous women in technology, including Ada Lovelace (considered to be the first computer programmer in the 1800s); Edith Clark (performed calculations for the first human computer at AT&T in 1912); and Grace Hopper, (invented the first compiler for a computer programming language and popularized the term debugging). Added to the list for modern times were high profile women holding senior technology roles, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, HP CEO Meg Whitman, and Safra Katz, Oracle Co-CEO.
