Chang Meemann was the first woman to head China’s Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology Via Global Times

Chang, a paleontologist at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was recognized for her work on vertebrates’ migration from sea to land, oil-bearing strata in east China and their sedimentary environment, as well as the lifting and aridification of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

In March, the 82-year-old was also named the 2018 L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards laureate “for her pioneering work on fossil records leading to insights on how aquatic vertebrates adapted to living on land.”

In a ceremony held on Tuesday, the Hong-Kong based foundation also awarded 55 scientists with advancement and innovation prizes.

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Ada Lovelace Day is a fabulous initiative aimed to increasing the profile of women in STEM and encouraging more girls into STEM careers.

Ensuring greater diversity in the technology sector is not only the right thing to do but it also makes good business sense. Progressive technology companies do not see diversity as a problem to be solved, but rather as a strength to be leveraged.

Ada Lovelace Day provides a great opportunity for Where Women Work to celebrate the companies who understand the importance of diversity within the technology sector and who pave paving the way for a more inclusive and enriched industry.

Happy Ada Lovelace Day! Today, in honor of Ada Lovelace, the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.
