As the new year approaches, many people wonder what lies in store for the future of technology. We’re betting on the rise of women in computing.
Women have more role models and resources than ever to encourage them to enter and remain in the tech field. Documentaries like “CODE- Debugging the Gender Gap” or films such as “Hidden Figures” highlight the achievements of women technicians and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. The number of women entering the tech field is also increasing thanks to events like the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC), which hosted 15,000 attendees this year. With so many women in computing on the rise, 2017 is sure to be a great year!
