Women Invent: 100 top women in science, technology, engineering and maths – Part 1 – as Silicon Republic’s Women Invent Tomorrow campaign launches for a second year, we publish Part 1 of our listing of some of the leading women in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths.
From world-leading academics to inspiring science communicators, from tech business leaders to early entrepreneurs, we were truly spoilt for choice here, so here we publish the first of two lists of some of Ireland’s leading women in the knowledge economy.
It seems ironic to hear some event organisers and media outlets bemoan the dearth of women role models in this sector. Once we set out to gather nominations for what was originally intended to be just one list of 50, we found ourselves spoilt for choice! So here is the first list of 50, and watch out for the next 50 in coming weeks!
