This Wordle* graphic presents key words about famous women in computer science. It describes women who are pioneers and leaders in computing, recognized by their peers, academia, and the technology industry through major awards and other public acknowledgements of excellence. Since 2009, I have lead a committee of the Anita Borg Institute – Advisory Board that collects and presents information about notable women in STEM.

In March 2012, we published the Famous Women in Computer Science web resource. Last month, we announced the “CRA-W and Anita Borg Institute Wikipedia Project – Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing” (and the list with more than 230 names). For more, see Notable Women List Triples.

As always, thanks to my wise and energetic committee members, including:

The graphic above includes information from both the 2012 and 2013 lists.
