Today is Ada Lovelace Day, a celebration of a woman who is widely appreciated as "the first programmer".
At SAS I work with a lot of programmers and other technical folks, many of whom are women (including my boss and my boss' boss). I tend to take this for granted, perhaps because my mother was a computer. But not everyone lives in such a balanced world, which is why organizations like this serve an important role.
I also have 3 daughters. I don't know whether any of them will choose a career in technology, but I'll make sure that they know that they have the heritage to support it.
