Here’s a bit of trivia for you today on International Women’s Day – the first programmers were women. Ada Lovelace published work on the first algorithm and Analytical Engine. But beyond that, Lovelace envisioned the future of computers. Grace Hopper, A.K.A the “First Lady of Software,” helped create the first compiler — she may have even popularized the term “debugging.”
Here at TrueMotion, we’re lucky to work with great women every day. But today, on International Women’s Day, we wanted to share what’s motivated them throughout their careers in hopes that their insight will inspire other women to follow their passions – just like they did.
Like many of us, we were inspired by our mothers’ work ethic and positivity. But our peers and other professionals have deeply inspired us. These women showed us that it’s possible to pursue our dreams and be a strong leader while balancing a fulfilling family life.
Women like Sheryl Sandberg, J.K. Rowling, and Zaha Hadid taught us to never take our foot off the gas in our own careers, to not be afraid to set ourselves apart from others, and to charge headfirst into creative ideas. We’re also inspired by the powerhouse women who worked for — and continue to fight for — positive change for all.
To the women of TrueMotion – thank you. Your hard work, perspective, and passion make this a better place to work every day.
