It’s my 7th year blogging for Ada Lovelace Day! It’s one of my favorite days to blog & celebrate amazing women. This year I would like to thank Dr. Sue Black AND the amazing Mary Carty who introduced me to Dr. Black!
Dr. Sue Black is simply incredible – and generous of her time on social media and an inspiration to me! Dr. Black OBE FBCS FRSA (born 1962) is a British computer scientist, academic and social entrepreneur. She has been instrumental in saving Bletchley Park, the World War II codebreaking site. (wikipedia) She wrote Saving Bletchley Park. You can find all ways to engage and connect with her here: https://about.me/sueblack
Mary Carty is also simply incredible. Mary is Executive Director @LaunchPadNUIG, CoFounder @OutboxIncubator, Advisor @stemettes,
#womenintech, speaker, author #outboxin #tech #startups #arts (twitter). The MAET program was extremely lucky to work with Mary & the LaunchPad team in Galway this summer and I was extremely lucky to gain a mentor, friend and champion. My mind is constantly running with ways to continue collaborations and support in formal and informal ways.
Follow Dr. Black & Mary to be inspired to action!
