There is no better time than on Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of women in STEM, to bring these issues to the forefront.

With Ada Lovelace Day upon us today (an international celebration of the achievements of women in the STEM sector), what better time to rally together and promote these inspirational figures, especially as 77% of the girls we surveyed felt that the science and technology sector lacks high-profile female role models.

When I'm asked about the best piece of advice I would give to any woman seeking a career in the fields of science, technology, education and mathematics (STEM) - where government figures show that women hold just 15.5% of jobs - my first response is to pick a good mentor.

Thanks Ada. The computer has changed my world, so much that - although it's a cliche to say it, I actually do have more computing power in my back pocket than Armstrong and Aldrin had when they went to the moon.
