It’s Tuesday, meaning – it’s Women in Tech Weekly time! And I couldn’t be more excited to share with you stories of fascinating women who are doing great things in the tech industry. Who knows, maybe they will inspire you to follow your dreams as well, despite challenges you might face!
Milena is celebrating her PhD thesis/project milestone!
In her own words:
“After a year of failures, tests, adjustments, and learning so many new things I finally got to install my experiment at Oxford! Everything is set up for measurements which will take place in September and this is very exciting because these results are the first ones I can put in my PhD thesis.“
Lindsey created her own nonprofit organization, STEMgirl group!
In her own words:
“So I had an idea to start my own stem group for girls. So I partnered up with the library starting in September I will be going in and showing girls cool experiments to get them interested and exposed to the stem field. Because women are still underrepresented in the stem field so I wanted to give elementary school kids a chance to experience the beauty of science. It’s a non-profit organization. And it’s basically going to be like an after school club / extracurricular ?“
Milly is celebrating that she got her Instagram account back!
In her own words:
“After 6 weeks that my account was wrongly disabled, last week I finally got it back. I am really happy to be able to share my journey as a Woman in Tech on Instagram again.“

It is a way we interact with our surroundings, the way we move through the world of business. You don’t have to hold an official leadership title to exhibit leadership traits or to benefit from them. These are the ideas I’ve been contemplating, so I decided to talk to an expert. Check out the article to learn more! ?
