The 30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech

The 30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech
By Megan Rose Dickey (Business Insider)


Women are (relatively) few and far between in the tech industry.

They make up less than 10% of venture capitalists, and they leave the industry at twice the rate of men, according to a recent study by the Kauffman Foundation.

There's also a shortage of women pursuing engineering, particularly software engineering.

But the women who do choose to enter the tech industry in one way or another are doing incredibly important work.

Over the last couple of weeks, Business Insider accepted nominations for the most important women 30 years old or under in tech. We combined those nominations with our own research to give our readers a definitive list and ranking.

We were truly blown away by the number of young, successful women in the tech industry. These women hold a variety of roles in the industry: founder, CEO, engineer, venture capitalist — you name it. 

27. Stacy-Marie Ishmael

Product Manager, Percolate
Age
: 28

About: Stacy-Marie Ishmael is the former founder and editor at market news service FT Tilt. Since the FT shut down FT Tilt in 2011, Ishamel has gone on to work as a product manager at Percolate where she helps brands create, promote, and manage social media content. Ishamel is also an active blogger over on her site Galavant Media, and works as a part-time visiting lecturer at the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism.

What people are saying about her: "The reason I'm nominating Stacy is that she is that most unusual person - a woman of color in tech who is brilliant at explaining why it's so important that we design technology for everyone, and not just women, but women who do not live in the middle-class world of most of us who read publications like Business Insider. She spoke at WNYC's recent Women in Tech panel at the Greene Space - she always makes me look at things in a new light. That day she pointed out that we are leaving out a huge number of poor women who could be hugely helped by technology, if only developers would design something for them."

Nothing at all wrong with what they said... that she's a woman of color is significant because there aren't that many in the world of technology.  I know of a couple friends and even they will tell you the same.   The bit about her being "brilliant at explaining" is highlighted out of context to imply that it is a statement on her eloquence, when in fact it speaks more about her ability to communicate complex ideas in simple terms.

Smart, Trini and attractive... the trifecta  :beermug:

I still don't get how in 2013 it is of note that she's a person of colour.
I would prefer to make that assessment of my own accord when viewing the article and seeing her picture and be pleasantly surprised.

I stopped the highlighting there because it's irrelevant what she's brilliant at explaining. Didn't stop the quote though.

I get that they are highlighting she's a female minority, but in 2013 who gives a damn especially since that list carried 4 women of Asian descent, 3 of African descent and 2 of S. Asian descent.  She done good though as did all those other women.
