Ada Lovelace Day - Thayer Prime
Female CEOs and founders are still very rare. So seeing one who has done that multiple times is very cool

Launching the Women in Robotics network
All the women in robotics
Harvard Business Review cites recent studies showing that visibility and mentoring are critical for maintaining women in technology careers. Computer science degrees for women have dropped to below 20% and this is reflected in robotics.
Our goals are threefold:
To encourage local network events. Women get the most professional benefit, mentoring and networking from small events.
To create a global communication platform. The new Women in Robotics network connects individuals around the world for discussion, coordination and inspiration.
To improve the visibility of women in robotics. We’ve been working on this since 2013 through our annual 25 Women In Robotics You Should Know About list, generating awareness about amazing women working in robotics at every career stage.

25 Women in Robotics You Need To Know About - 2016
25 Women in Robotics 2016
Women are underrepresented in robotics and even less visible. We shine the light on 25 outstanding women each year in a bid to improve the visibility of women in robotics everywhere.

Why Roya Mahboob inspires me
Roya Mahboob has helped to create opportunities for women in computing in a country where women are rarely allowed to work, let alone in such a male dominated industry. Funding ten schools of coding through profits earned via her other business ventures, Mahboob gives women the opportunity to learn vital computing skills, from coding to graphic design. She's not let threats from the Taliban stop her efforts to empower Afghan women with knowledge.

In France in the 1700s, she was one of the two most prolific translators in chemistry, translating scientific articles in five languages and substantially increasing the availability of knowledge.

Ursula Franklin for Ada Lovelace Day #ALD16
For me she really personifies the goals of ALD; not only did she represent excellence in science and engineering, but she was a great, perhaps even visionary, thinker on the very role of technology in our society, as well as a fearless and tireless advocate for women in STEM, peace and social justice.
