Tynker Celebrates Women’s History Month

In the United States, March is celebrated as Women’s History Month, a time dedicated to honoring the monumental contributions women have made to the nation’s history. This month, Tynker is proud to continue our tradition of highlighting the incredible achievements of women in technology for Women’s History Month. We believe in recognizing the pioneers who have not only excelled in their fields but have also made significant impacts on society.

At Tynker, our commitment to fostering an environment where women can inspire young girls in STEM is unwavering. This Women’s History Month, we are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of women trailblazers in tech, including our most recent honorees, Ashley Tolbert, and the young innovator, 15-year-old Gitanjali Rao.

Joining these remarkable women, we spotlight four more trailblazers who have made significant strides in technology and AI:

Fei-Fei Li: As a visionary in artificial intelligence, Fei-Fei Li has made groundbreaking contributions through her work with ImageNet. Her dedication to human-centered AI and advocacy for diversity in tech underscores the profound impact that thoughtful, inclusive technology can have on society.

Ayanna Howard: Ayanna Howard’s pioneering work in robotics and AI, especially in creating assistive technologies for individuals with disabilities, exemplifies the power of tech to improve lives. Her leadership and commitment to diversity in STEM education continue to inspire young women to pursue careers in technology.

Timnit Gebru: Known for her critical research on algorithmic bias, Timnit Gebru has been a vocal advocate for ethical AI development. Her efforts to promote diversity within AI research and to address biases in machine learning are vital for ensuring technology serves all of humanity equitably.

Regina Barzilay: A leader in applying machine learning to healthcare, Regina Barzilay’s work in AI-driven diagnostics and treatment strategies has the potential to transform medical care. Her achievements highlight the importance of innovative approaches to solving complex health challenges.

These extraordinary women, along with Joy Buolamwini, Carol Reiley, and Margaret Hamilton, are not just leaders in their fields—they are champions for change, using technology to improve the world.

We also remember the pioneering spirit of Margaret Hamilton, who coined the term “software engineering” and played a crucial role in the Apollo 11 moon landing. Her legacy is a reminder of the power of innovation and the importance of being pioneers in technology.

Tynker’s mission extends beyond celebrating these women; we aim to empower the next generation of girls in the sciences, coding, and beyond. Through coding, children learn problem-solving and critical thinking and unlock creativity, storytelling, and the ability to envision a world of possibilities.

“What will your kids create with code?”

As we savor the achievements of these remarkable women and all women making strides across various fields, we invite you to explore the world of coding with Tynker.
