Today’s Dame of the Day is Tracy Chou. As an accomplished programmer, Chou has written code for Facebook, Google, Quora, and Pinterest. But when she pushed the tech world to come clean about the number of women they hired, Chou became a lighting rod for the industry’s less-than-diverse hiring practices. By insisting that tech companies apply the same data driven approaches they use to solve technical problems, Chou drew attention to the industry’s diversity problem and set them on a course to correct it.
