TBT- How Webrings, Blinkies, & Cliques Shaped Female Coders of Today
Dec. 7, 2017
Think back to the early 2000's, when our biggest concerns were who was going to fill that last spot in our Myspace top 8, whether we wanted music to automatically play when someone clicked our profile page, and who was going to feed our "cybunny" when we had to do our homework.
Little did we know, all that time we spent perfecting our profile pages was time actually spent learning to code. We started with webrings and table based layouts, found our own domains (that didn't require using our parent's credit cards) and joined communities with other teenage girls like ourselves who were happy to make custom GIF's in turn for some coding advice.
were are pretty cool girls.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
A five-step framework for addressing systematic racism at work
The world has changed in the past few weeks.
We're watching corporations and organizations across the world come out in support of Black lives in droves. Many of those organizations are doing so for the first time in their history.
