4th Edition: “Notable Women in Computing” Playing Cards Listing

Jessica Dickinson Goodman, Susan Rodger and I have just updated the Notable Women in Computing playing cards – publishing the 4th Edition since 2014. These will be available for sale at the Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education – SIGCE 2019 event, and (as always) on Notable Technical Women. The cards have been updated to reflect some of the new honors for these remarkable leaders – and this is the first version in which each of the 54 honorees has a photo, plus a link to her Wikipedia page. In the first edition, 25% of the honorees did not have a Wikipedia page.

Notable Women in Computing playing cards are associated with the long-term “CRA-W and Anita Borg Institute Wikipedia Project – Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing” project.  We encourage you to use this information to inspire students and teach computer science, and write or improve Wikipedia pages – especially creating new pages about remarkable women who have none. Please watch our 2014 Kickstarter video about why we picked these 54 women from among all of the remarkable technical women.

Learning in Jail, Using Wikipedia

EfM at Elmwood Jail, Milpitas CA, Sep 2016

I lead a weekly Education for Ministry seminar at Elmwood Correctional Facility (County Jail in Milpitas, California). This month, we started our second EfM term inside Elmwood. Our seminar includes six men in Year-1 (studying Collins’ Introduction to the Hebrew Bible) plus four continuing to Year-2 (studying Powell’s Introducing the New Testament: A Historical, Literary, and Theological Survey). We use college-level texts plus Bibles, Books of Common Prayer, and the EfM Reading and Reflection Guide, with other resources in both English and Spanish.

I am also the EfM Mentor for another weekly seminar hosted by Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church (Saratoga, CA). One of the differences between my two classes is availability of outside reference materials. The student inmates do not have web access. So, I make a standing offer to print out articles from Wikipedia and other sources to supplement assigned texts. The EfM students at Elmwood are deeply curious and want to learn all they can, especially about text and biblical references and topics raised during our theological reflections.

Yesterday night, I was asked to look up the Oracle of Delphi, lyrics to two hymns, and Milton’s “Paradise Lost”. I bring in printouts  glued at the corner (staples are forbidden).  During the last year, I have provided Wikipedia articles on these topics:

Amenemope (pharaoh) Apostle (Christian) Archangel Ark of the Covenant Assumption of Moses
Baptism of Jesus Bel and the Dragon Ben Sira Bible translations into English Book of Amos
Book of Baruch Book of Jasher (biblical references) Book of the Wars of the Lord Book of Kings Cain and Abel
Cenacle Civil and political rights Code of Hammurabi Crossing the Red Sea Crusades
David Davidic line Diodorus Siculus Don Quixote Francis of Assisi
Golden calf Gospel of Jesus’ Wife Herodotus Historical criticism History of ancient Israel and Judah
Huldrych Zwingli Ignatius of Loyola Innocence Project Instruction of Amenemope Isaac
John Calvin Levite Maimonides Martin Luther Nephilim
Noah Nostradamus Oxford Martyrs Paleontology in New York Paul the Apostle
Peter Qarqar Rechabite Sanchuniathon Sirach
Sodom and Gomorrah Ten Commandments Ten Lost Tribes Tertullian Third Temple
Unknown years of Jesus Western Wall William Shakespeare Zayin .

If you are interested in volunteering in a Santa Clara County (Silicon Valley) jail, please contact the Correctional Institutions Chaplaincy (CIC).

TechWomen 2015, Mentoring Standard, Notable Technical Women, Wikipedia

IMG_3102

TechWomen 2015:  The TechWomen 2015 year has started! Professional and Cultural mentors for the 99 Emerging Leaders from 19 countries who will participate in the five-week program are being notified of acceptances. I have been honored to be selected as a Cultural Mentor for the South Bay Area in the Arts & Culture group. I am looking forward to working with Emerging Leaders and other mentors in the Silicon Valley. Since 2011, 156 women from Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria, Palestine, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tunisia, Yemen, and Zimbabwe have participated. The 2015 TechWomen program will expand to include women from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

This year, my company Mentoring Standard will be offering training and certification for TechWomen mentors. Our Team is now developing those materials. We are very much looking forward to supporting this outstanding program of citizen diplomacy by the US Department of State – Bureau of Educational Cultural Affairs.

Notable Technical Women: The Notable Technical Women project by Jessica Dickinson Goodman (California Department of Justice), Dr. Susan Rodger (Duke University), and me is also thriving: Jessica just placed a big re-order of the Notable Women in Computing card decks and posters, and the TechWomen cards and posters continue to sell steadily. TechWomen Director Arezoo Miot is pictured above with the TechWomen poster in her Institute of International Education office in San Francisco.

Want to write for Wikipedia? We welcome corrections and additions to information on the Notable Technical Women materials. Since the first printing in November 2014, eight honorees have had new Wikipedia biographies written (or we found pages about them): Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza, Laurie Hendren, Kathleen McKeown, Betty Snyder (aka Betty Holberton), Valerie Taylor, Marlyn Wescoff (aka Marilyn Meltzer), Linda Petzold, and Lixia Zhang. There are only six Notable Technical Women honorees left (out of the 54 honorees) who need biographies written: Anuradha Annaswamy, Chieko Asakawa, Qiheng Hu, Yuqing Gao, Lila Ibrahim, and Sophie Vandebroek. We update the cards as possible between printings.

Poster Done: “Notable Women in Computing”

Notable Women in CS_Poster_web (1)

Professor Susan Rodger, my daughter Jessica Dickinson Goodman, and I created the “Notable Women in Computing” Poster and Playing Cards for delivery at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women and Computing (aka GHC14) next week. Jessica just finished designing the poster above – showing all 54 of the playing cards.

The poster text says:

Keep our history: Women have been leaders in computing from the start but not enough of our contributions are remembered. Keep our history by writing a Wikipedia page for a notable woman in computing (draw from our list of 300+). Get tips on writing a great page, get a copy of this deck, and learn more about this project at Bit.ly/NotableW.

This project and card set is associated with the long-term “CRA-W and Anita Borg Institute Wikipedia Project – Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing”project.  We encourage you to use this information to write or improve Wikipedia pages – especially creating new pages about remarkable women who have none! The detailed card listing is in my 1 October 2014 blog entry.

Duke University and Everwise are sponsors. Playing Cards will be for sale $6/deck (our cost) at the GHC14 Duke University table – one deck per person!

The Notable Women in Computer Science project is a labor of love for the women behind it, which is why we are licensing the card deck under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 U.S. License. We have done a number of things to ensure this deck only helps, and does not hurt, women in computing. Our efforts included: using public domain images, seeking individual permission for images, seeking to represent the reality of diversity of women in computing, and seeking input on the project from women leaders in technology.

If you have a concern (don’t like the public domain photo we found of you, don’t think the photo you took can be licensed in the way we did, decided you did not want to be included, want to provide a better photo or more correct text) we want to know and we will do our best to help you. Please contact Katy Dickinson (katy dot dickinson at gmail dot com) with questions.

Notable Women in Computing Playing Cards – GHC14

Notable-Women-in-Computing_Royal-Flush-Hearts

Professor Susan Rodger (Duke University), my daughter Jessica Dickinson Goodman, and I are almost done with our Grace Hopper Celebration of Women and Computing (aka GHC14) project “Notable Women in Computing and Wikipedia”. We are collaborating on both a formal GHC14 conference poster plus playing cards featuring 54 notable technical women. This has taken a long time to prepare but they are looking good. The honorees we have worked with have been entirely supportive and excited about this project.

This work is associated with the “CRA-W and Anita Borg Institute Wikipedia Project – Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing” project that Susan and I have worked on for years.  Jessica has been our creative designer, production staff, and GHC14 project manager.   Duke University and Everwise are project sponsors. Information is not complete on all of the honorees (so there will be some cards featuring just a silhouette) but dozens of the featured women have sent us photos or given us permission to use photos from their professional pages.

Hearts cards shown here:

  • Queen – Frances Allen – IBM Fellow Emerita, Turing Award, Computer History Museum Fellow, IEEE Fellow
  • King – Barbara Liskov – MIT Professor, Turing Award, ACM Fellow, SWE Achievement Award
  • Jack – Shafrira Goldwasser – MIT Professor, Turing Award, ACM-W Athena Lecturer
  • Ace – Hessa Sultan Al Jaber – Qatar ICT Minister, Chair CS Department – Qatar Univ.
  • 10 – Mary Jane Irwin – Pennsylvania State Univ. Professor, ACM Fellow, IEEE Fellow, NAE Member, ACM-W Athena Lecturer

Because I am mentoring a TechWomen Emerging Leader from Jordan who is arriving just as GHC14 starts, for the first time in ten years I cannot attend the Hopper Conference myself, but Dr. Susan Rodger will present our poster and she will be distributing the decks of cards from the Duke University table. The cards will be marked Creative Commons * and we will provide instructions if folks want to create another deck with different people honored. We expect that this deck will be a First Edition and that there will be corrections and updates as a result of GHC14 discussions, resulting in a Second Edition.

* The Notable Women in Computer Science project is a labor of love for the women behind it, which is why we are licensing the card deck under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 U.S. License. We have done a number of things to ensure this deck only helps, and does not hurt, women in computing. Our efforts included: using public domain images, seeking individual permission for images, seeking to represent the reality of diversity of women in computing, and seeking input on the project from women leaders in technology.

If you have a concern (don’t like the public domain photo we found of you, don’t think the photo you took can be licensed in the way we did, decided you did not want to be included) we want to know and we will do our best to help you. Please contact Katy Dickinson (katy dot dickinson at gmail dot com) with questions.
