Dr. Fei-Fei Li
A pioneer of artificial intelligence with an impressive Twitter following, Dr. Fei-Fei Li is another one of today’s most influential women in technology. Dr. Li was born in Beijing, China, and moved to the U.S. with her mother when she was 16. She studied physics at Princeton and went on to receive a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Caltech.
The Stanford professor co-founded AI4ALL, a nonprofit aimed at improving diversity in the field of AI. But she’s most known for her work on the ImageNet project, a database of over 15 million images. In layman’s terms, the database helped “train” the first computer to recognize and understand what’s in a picture. In her TED Talk on the project, Dr. Li stated, “Little by little, we’re giving sight to the machines. First, we teach them to see. Then, they help us to see better.”
Whitney Wolfe Herd
Wolfe Herd, CEO at Bumble recently became the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire when Bumble IPOed, but it certainly was no easy road for her to get there. She didn’t have a STEM degree or well-connected parents, and she started her career in tech just 5 years ago. She leads Bumble, a dating app where 100 million women have signed up to make the first move. But that’s not all that sets Bumble apart from its competitors. The company has taken a firm stance against any form of body shaming, worked with Texas lawmakers to outlaw the unsolicited sending of lewd images, and showed no tolerance for misogyny on its platform.

Kimberly Bryant started the Black Girls Code in 2011. The struggle to find a diverse computer programming course for her daughter in the Bay Area inspired the nonprofit, which now has the mission of teaching a million girls of color how to code by the year 2040.
Having studied electrical engineering in college, Bryant said, “I didn’t want my daughter to feel culturally isolated in the pursuit of her studies as I had as a young girl. I didn’t want her to give up on her passions just because she didn’t see anyone else like her in the classroom.” Among a long list of other well-deserved accolades, Bryant was named a Champion of Change by the White House and received the Ingenuity Award in Social Progress from the Smithsonian Institute
