Kathy Kleiman spoke on A Missing Chapter of Computer History: the Unknown Origins of Modern Software at MITRE’S C2 Joint Lecture Series (video teleconferenced to nationwide locations).
Certificate of Appreciation»
“Wow, what an impacting and informative presentation about a very important part of computer history. The way Kathy explained the part these women played in maturing modern software development was outstanding. The ENIAC Project can positively influence many young women considering a career in the computer science to know that they can have a huge impact. We are looking forward to the release of the ENIAC Project documentary so we can better understand the totality of the project and the influence of the “refrigerator ladies.”

“Kathy Kleiman’s talk on the ENIAC programmers was one of the most successful RENCI Distinguished Lectures in our series. We had a full house at our Duke University location and a lively Q and A after the talk. Many attendees, in particular female students, took the time to tell me how much they enjoyed Kathy’s conversational style and how astonished they were to learn the story of the women of ENIAC. This is a story that needs to be told and that can inspire young scientists and engineers.”
