A Day In The Life: Women Tech Innovators

Sunday, March 02, 2014

In 2014, women still represent a small fraction of entrepreneurs, investors, coders and engineers in America. Join Tell Me More host Michel Martin as we engage innovative women in tech around #NPRWIT. On the radio, we'll meet women who are driving the rise of the technology sector in this nation's economy. We'll also talk about why the majority of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are men, and how to encourage young women to consider coding and computer science careers.

Throughout March on Twitter, women innovators across the globe will live-tweet a day in their lives using #NPRWIT. A master inventor from IBM, a technology executive from American Express, and entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley to South Africa represent some of the women taking part. 'A Day in the Life' allows us to experience in real time the impact that women are making across the world in the field of technology, science, entrepreneurship and innovation. Follow our hashtag #NPRWIT.

We want your input as well. Email your thoughts to tellmemore@npr.org or use the hashtag #NPRWIT on Twitter. Tell Me More is an innovator in creating segments with a dynamic digital presence, having hosted compelling Twitter discussions around diversity in tech with #NPRBlacksinTech and #NPRLatism.
