Happy Women’s History Month! This year, the United Nations declared the International Women’s Day theme to be “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.” The UN chose the theme to highlight what women have accomplished in the technology sphere and the steps needed to achieve gender equality in digital spaces.
While women have made great strides in the U.S. workforce, they are still vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs. The 2020 United States Census reports that women have increased STEM employees from 8% in 1970 to 27% in 2019.
With the March 8th holiday focusing on technology and gender equality, the UN is highlighting some of the women leading the advancement of technology in their fields. Our Nimble AMS team thought we would also celebrate some of our standout customer leaders. Check them out and prepare to be inspired!
