March is Women’s History Month and T5 Data Centers honors all of the women who make an impact every day, especially those in tech and telecom. Many strides have been made in recent years to increase the representation of women in technology industries. More than ever, women today have access to and are pursuing careers in digital infrastructure. But there is more to be done.
Organizations such as the data center and mission-critical focused 7X24 Exchange foster many STEM initiatives, mentoring programs, thought leadership opportunities, and WiMCO, Women in Mission Critical Operations. WiMCO fosters engagement and participation of women in the industry including promoting mission-critical opportunities for women, providing leadership opportunities through individual communities and developing and supporting STEM initiatives, curriculums, scholarships and programs.
T5@Charlotte’s Tancy Dean, Critical Facilities Technician and Erica Chariker, Critical Facilities Junior Technician are both members of WiMCO and their contributions are setting examples of innovation and progress for the future of our industry.
Another 7×24 initiative is International Data Center Day, which took place on March 22nd, dedicated to introducing young people to the digital infrastructure field and inspiring them, especially young women, to consider career paths in digital infrastructure.
Throughout history, women have made significant contributions to the world of technology and are paving the way for future generations, serving as role models and inspiration for young women who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM fields.
Please join T5 in celebrating all the women who tell their stories throughout the digital infrastructure landscape and make a difference every day. And as we celebrate Women’s History Month, check out some of the contributions of a few of the women that make up an important part of tech history, here.
