Hi I'm Antoinette but my friends call me Toni. I work in network security for a financial institution and run a non-profit called Reboot Iowa to promote technical literacy
This question came up while I was doing some reading for a presentation I had to give at work about the gender gap in tech. I was hard pressed to answer this question off of the top of my head and I'm sure if I employ a little bit of Google-foo I could dig up a few. For example, one of the cofounders of Cisco was a woman (I can't say how technical she was). So, can you name a woman who would be in the same league as tech founders like Mark, Steve, or Bill?
Note: Sheryl Sandberg doesn't count. The Yahoo CEO doesn't count. Let it be known that I am aware that Steve Wozniak was actually the technical mind behind Apple, but I say Steve Jobs because of the social relevance of his name in this particular instance.
Here is my entry. The founder of LMG Security is a woman named Sherri Davidoff. Author of a couple of technical books. Over a decade of experience in information security. Highly technical.
