Ada Lovelace Day- My tribute to the power of Women

Posted by Priyanka Nag on 9:10 AM
Ada Lovelace Day is about sharing stories of women — whether engineers, scientists, technologists or mathematicians — who have inspired both inspired and contributed to the society hugely.
The aim of celebrating this day is to create new role models for girls and women in these male-dominated fields by raising the profile of other women in STEM.
When we say women are at par with men regarding everything, we don't simply say it, we mean it.

On the occasion of Ada Lovelace Day, I thought of paying tribute to a few dynamic ladies in the IT Industry who are my inspiration.
Who better to start with other than Mitchell Baker, the Head & Chairperson of Mozilla Foundation, Chairperson Mozilla Corporation.

Winifred Mitchell Baker, better known simply as Mitchell Baker, is a coordinator of development of the Open Source Mozilla Internet applications.
Baker was trained as a lawyer. She coordinates business and policy issues and sits on both the Mozilla Foundation Board of Directors and the Mozilla Corporation Board of Directors. In 2005, Time magazine included her in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world and she has been affectionately given the title of "Chief Lizard Wrangler" at the Mozilla Corporation.
Michelle Zatlyn is co-founder of Cloudflare. She was named one of the 2011 Top Women to Watch in Technology by the Huffington Post and one of the Top 15 Women to Watch in Tech by Inc. Magazine.
Ellen Pack, co-founder of appSmitten.com has more than 20 years experience building online and service businesses. She was VP of Marketing for Elance and in the early 1990′s, founded Women.com and grew it into the largest internet destination for women.
