Women in Tech Weekly Issue 18
This Tuesday falls dead in the middle of holiday season, so it’s a short, but still very sweet one ?
We’ve good a new job, a resource filled with more inspiring women, and a history lesson to encourage you to pursue your tech career, because, yes, a woman’s place is in that industry, too! Enjoy and see you next week, hopefully, featured in the next issue of Women in Tech Weekly Newsletter (link for submissions below).

Did you know that women used to work as human computers and that tech was a mainstream career choice for women? Even Cosmopolitan published an article about it in the 1960’s – talking about many great career opportunities women can have in the industry! Watch this video to learn more about the history of women in tech and about the amazing female inventors and pioneers in the field!
Even as most of us are on holiday (I’m travelling around at this very moment), some of you are still doing such amazing things that I’m in awe every time I prepare this newsletter… And for everyone else reading this, make sure you share your knowledge and accomplishments when you’re back from vacation, refreshed and ready for new tech victories!
