Amazing Women In Tech

Written by Kyle Do Rosario

The tech field is still predominantly male, and although this is changing slowly, it’s important to recognise and pay tribute to the women who play a pivotal role in moving digital and mobile technology forward.

SUSAN WOJCICKI
CEO of YouTube
A Harvard graduate, Wojcicki began her tech career at Google in 1999, working her way up to Senior Vice President of Advertising and Commerce. Google’s 2006 purchase of YouTube – a small start-up at that time – was her idea. Wojcicki was promoted to CEO of YouTube in 2014. Under her management, YouTube has grown to become the world’s largest video-sharing platform, and we’re excited to see where Wojcicki takes it in the future.

DIANE GREEN
Chief Executive Officer of Google’s Cloud Businesses
There is no doubt that the future of technology is in the cloud, and one woman playing a crucial role in cloud development is Diane Green. Since her appointment as Chief Executive Officer of Google Cloud in 2012, Green has had enormous success in her position due to her well-honed technical and customer service skills. She has also hired some highly qualified and influential women for her team, including Jennifer Linn as Product Management Director, Melody Meckfessel, as Vice President – Engineering, Aparna Sinha who heads up the Kubernetes Engine and Kubernetes Open Source teams, and Deepti Srivastava – Cloud Spanner Product Manager.

PRACHI GUPTA
Director of Engineering at LinkedIn
In her role, Gupta oversees and guides the LinkedIn Group’s technical direction. She has attributed her success in part to the company’s focus on mentorship and support of female employees. She co-founded an incubator programme that encourages staff to team up to strategise and pitch ideas for projects to LinkedIn’s executives. When projects are approved, each team gets three months to turn their vision into reality. Gupta also co-founded the LinkedIn Women in Technology initiative to address the vast gender imbalance in the tech industry.

NGOZI OGBONNA
Women in Wireless Global Leadership Team
A self-confessed “technophile”, Nigerian-born Ogbonna is a powerful voice for women in the tech industry. She has extensive integrated marketing strategy experience and is a tireless fighter for gender equity in the tech world. With an MBA in marketing and digital media, Ogbonna is considered one of the industry’s top “ones to watch” in the coming years.

These are just a few of the influential women in tech who are paving the way for future generations of female game-changers.
