“Women in Tech are not a mirage for some shortsighted ones, but just a brilliant fact since centuries for those who have an undistorted and clear vision.
Just remember Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, Hedi Lamaar, Adele Goldberg, Annie Easley, Raida Pearleman, Susanne Kare and all those female scientists who are still in Tech as a vital and equal part of our global society.”
