#BreakTheBias – Happy International Women’s Day!
Happy International Women’s Day! A day set aside to specially celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while also marking a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
The IWD has been celebrated since 1911, the theme for this year’s IWD is “Break The Bias”. According to the official International Women’s Day website, this theme is explained this way: “Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough. Action is needed to level the playing field”.
In recognition of the importance of IWD and this year’s theme, we want to shine the spotlight on Katherine Johnson.
Katherine Johnson was an American mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. crewed spaceflights. Let us break the bias and make it easier for the next Katherine Johnson to emerge!
A video of Katherine Johnson is on our homepage today.
