March 08, 2024

As we celebrate International Women's Day, let us take a moment to shine a spotlight on the incredible women who are not just breaking barriers but redefining the very essence of technology. This year on International Women's Day, let us marvel at the brilliance, resilience, and innovation that women bring to the dynamic world of technology – especially those here at ABM!

The Power of Women in Tech: Unleashing the Magic

1. Celebrating Diversity in Tech:

In the vast landscape of technology, women bring a spectrum of perspectives, ideas, and experiences. Their diversity fosters innovation and ensures that technology solutions are as inclusive as they are groundbreaking.

2. Tech Trailblazers Redefining Norms:

Meet the visionaries, the coders, the engineers, and the disruptors. Incantational Women in technology are not just embracing change; they are the driving force behind it. From pioneering startups to leading tech giants, their impact is felt across the digital realm.

3. Mentoring the Future

Women understand the importance of paving the way for the next generation. Through mentorship programs, coding bootcamps, and advocacy, they are nurturing a future where every girl sees herself thriving in the exciting world of technology.

Profiles in Technology Excellence

Ada Lovelace – The Pioneer of Programming:

Widely regarded as the world's first computer programmer, Ada Lovelace's legacy continues to inspire women in tech to fearlessly pursue their passion for coding and innovation. Ada had a passion for mathematics and was studying along side Charles Babbage, who had invented a calculating machine. Upon using the machine, Ada knew it’s capabilities could be much greater and carry out complex formulas; she successfully set out to write a program for the machine that could calculate Bernoulli numbers.

Grace Hopper – A Trailblazer in Software Development:

Known for her groundbreaking work in developing one of the first compilers, Grace Hopper's contributions laid the foundation for modern programming languages. Grace devised the groundwork still used today for many programming languages, and her work on writing the first computer manual “A Manual of Operation for the Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator” is a testament to her ingenuity. Her legacy reminds us that women have been at the forefront of tech innovation for decades.
