Velma (Age 6) Myself (Age 11)

When I was 4 years old, my parents brought home a miniature dachshund named Daphane. She was hands down the meanest little dog to ever walk the face of the planet but it didn’t matter because I was enamored by her stubby legs and thunderous bark.

Three years later, Daphane gave birth to a litter of five puppies. I remember the day they were born as I threw myself down the stairs out of my 1st grade classroom and joined my parents at the vet’s office.

As the puppies grew up, we gave them away to family and friends. We…

Over the past few decades, women have made a major impact in the workforce! Currently, 57% of professional occupations in the US are held by women. However, women make up a meager 25% of the tech workforce. That’s only 1 in 4 people! On top of that, the percentage of women in the tech industry has actually been getting smaller over the past few years. When the entire workforce is benefiting from a higher percentage of women in the workplace, the tech industry still doesn’t follow this model.

The Decline

Many of the world’s history books always include the same unfortunate detail….the lack of women written about. This is not to say that women haven’t been a part of some of the biggest historical events and innovations of past times. It’s just that no one ever took the time to write about them. In the era of inclusion, with more women flocking to STEM-related job fields than ever before, taking the time to remember the history of women in tech is vital to moving towards a more inclusive future. …

While this number is incredible on its own, what’s more interesting is the sheer amount of advertising that’s taking place on this platform. We’ve all seen ads across other social media.
