Women Help Women Move into High-Tech Careers

Women from the social networking group

By Padraig Ryan

They may vary in age and have different personal and professional backgrounds but a team of women who recently completed an intensive six-month computer coding program at Rutgers believes that women need to stick together to move forward in the high-tech industry. 

“Women represent more than half of our population,” said Nancy Lukas, a former teacher who graduated from Rutgers Coding Bootcamp after working for more than 20 years as a teacher. “We use technology as much as men and it is crucial for women to be part of the design and implementation of this technology.”

That’s why Nancy and four other women who met at Rutgers Coding Bootcamp decided to create a social networking application called The Loop that they say will offer help and support women in the high-tech industry who want to break into what has traditionally been a male-dominated field.

The U.S. Department of the Interior, the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Geological Survey already use drones to monitor wildlife populations without disturbing them. Amazon is testing drones that could deliver packages in as little as half an hour after an online purchase. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has teamed with other agencies on an experiment to use Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to spy on storms as they evolve.
