This Women's Day, Syntech would like to honor the empowering and innovative women in tech who have had a hand in how we see and use tech today. Their work in the field of technology has shown that they can overcome all obstacles in their path. 

From the stereotypes of old and outdated mindsets in our society, women broke all barriers to be where they are today. They have contributed in numerous ways to make sure that they are not left behind in this race to achieve new heights. 

Empowered By History

Empowered By History

Female tech leaders have a huge role in today's landscape. A lot of prominent figures from history can be considered role models for these women. Among these is Ada Lovelace, the first known programmer who worked on a mechanical computer concept. 

Many women surfaced into computer science and engineering after being inspired by Ada, and through her efforts many efforts led the world to advancements that have shaped the world as we know it. 

Evolution of Women in Tech

Women have had to overcome many obstacles to be where they are today. Now in the majority of companies including Syntech, you will notice that women make up a large percentage of the workforce. The tech industry is all about collaboration, but that wasn’t always the case. Women had to work hard to achieve the status they have today, and the achievements of women in tech have made it essential for their inclusion in the tech industry. 

During the 20th century, women like Margaret Hamilton exceeded the expectations of many to aid in a space program. Then later on, after multiple advancements in technology, came Silicon Valley. During this time, innovative women like Sheryl Sandberg, who is currently a board member, adviser, and Chief Operating Officer of Meta, paved the way for women of the new age to contribute to the tech industry. 

Female Leaders of The Tech Age

Closing the gender gap in tech is not easy, but many women have overcome the numerous difficulties presented to them and created opportunities for other women to succeed. Let us take a look at some of the women in recent times who have contributed to closing the gender gap and have had a hand in empowering many more women around the world. 

Ada Lovelace, Pioneer of Algorithms

Ada Lovelace is one of the pioneers of computer programming and an icon for women in information technology. She is regarded as the world's first-ever computer programmer and is often referred to as the Enchantress of Numbers. She worked alongside Charles Babbage, a mechanical engineer, to create the Analytical Engine, which laid the foundation of multi-purpose computers today. Her intuition led her to believe that computers were destined for more than just being calculators. 

She wrote the first-ever algorithm to support the notes she had on the Analytical Engine. Although the computers were never conceived to complete fruition, the work Ada did on this project paved the way for the complete potential of computers today.
