Women ROCKING it!!!

imagesFew days ago, I came across one of my favourite kind of posts while researching online; a post on the leading women rocking IT- I like the sound of ‘rocking’!!! These women are redefining the industry and providing inspiration for the next generation of female software engineers and because of this reason, I have decided to discuss them on this post. Before you read though, here is my disclaimer – I’m Not a Feminist so don’t get it twisted. I only love it when I see women doing pretty well and breaking barriers on their way to the top and I love it even more when these women are in the tech world. Reason is, I really can’t count how many times I have heard things like “Bola don’t stress yourself, tech is for the guys” but guess what, the more I want to quit the more I love to stay…I have immeasurable passion for tech.

That being said, let us go to the main point behind my epistle; I know you can’t wait – lol. These women are leading and exceeding expectations in their various organizations and I noticed they all have something in common – they are either the founders or co-founders of the respective organizations they work for.Here is the list of the top ten women and a brief description of what they do:
