Today is International Women’s Day. What better day to celebrate women who are innovating across technology, science, and design? Wired Magazine highlighted women who are doing just that, such as Wang Qi, who transformed the lives of subsistence farmers in her hometown by showing them the benefits of e-commerce, and Kresse Wesling, co-founder, Elvis & Kresse, which tackles the build-up of materials in landfills by finding creative ways to transform waste streams. Mary Snapp, Corporate Vice President and Head of Microsoft Philanthropies, writes about the #PressforProgress, movement, which aims to inspire the next generation of female STEM leaders, and Education World has gathered a list of resources for teachers to celebrate International Women's Day. Tech & Learning celebrated women edtech leaders in our latest list of most influential edtech influencers, such as Suz Somersall, founder of KiraKira3D, which promotes STEAM education for everyone, with a focus on young women. Thank you to all of the educators who find ways to inspire young women every day to become the next generation of innovators. – Christine Weiser, Content Director
