As in so many fields, nonprofits, religious organizations, libraries, and foundations are important change agents toward a world of gender equality. There are powerful women in these organizations. I have noticed that a significant percentage, I daresay a majority, of the people attending the big annual Nonprofit Technology Conferences (NTC) have been women every year.
It is one of the very few tech conferences where that is the case. I'd just like to list of few of those powerful women whose good work I happen to know about.
