To celebrate International Women’s Day, Stemettes were joined by GCHQ for a Q&A, chat and celebration of women in STEM. Stemette’s founder Anne-Marie was joined by GCHQ’s Strategy & Policy Director, Jo.
They discussed women, cyber and women in tech past, present and future. GCHQ highlighted amazing female mathematicians for IWD, including a discussion of the women at Bletchley Park.
Of the 10,000 people who worked at @bletchleypark during #WWII, 75% of them were women. Their work was crucial in helping towards the Allied victory. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2021 pic.twitter.com/Hp2PjL4LNF
