Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international day of blogging (including videologs, pods, twitter updates and more) that highlights the achievements of women in technology and science. Last year I did a pre-ALD post Worth Blogging About on Ada Lovelace Day with suggestions for women who would make great ALD blog topics. This year I thought I’d go more in depth and provide a complete list of women who have won awards from the Anita Borg Institute over the years.
If you haven’t selected your subject for tomorrow’s Ada Lovelace Day blog post, any one of these women would make a great subject!
- Kathleen R. McKeown, Henry and Gertrude Rothschild Professor of Computer Science, Columbia University, for Innovation
- Lila Ibrahim, General Manager, Emerging Markets Platform Group, Intel Corporation, for Social Impact
- Kristina M. Johnson, Ph.D., Under Secretary for Energy at the Department of Energy, for Leadership
- Ekaterina Fedotova (2009)
- BlogHer Inc founders (2008)
- Paula Goldman (2007)
- Carol Muller (2006)
- Karen Banks (2004)
- Ruzena Bajcsy (2009)

And that’s not all! Another twenty-five women have received small cash awards through our Anita Borg Systers Pass-it-on (PIO) Awards program since its inception in 2007. Tomorrow I will blog about some of the women who have been recipients of PIO awards, and bring you up to date on how they are passing-it-on to other technical women.
