When Dianne Kibbey obtained her undergraduate degree, she constituted fifty percent of the total number of women in her computer science graduating class.
Now, as the Global Head of Community and Social Media at Newark element14, she leads the strategy and day to day operations of the element14 online community for electronics engineers and makers. In addition to her work at element 14, Dianne volunteers at Disney II Magnet School, part of the Chicago Public Schools. She teaches young girls how to code and create new technologies, ranging from alarms to accelerometers.
Dianne is becoming yet another powerful driving force promoting opportunities for women in technology. Learn how and where she draws the energy, support and inspiration to speed up that movement.
