The Pioneers of Computing and The Imposter Syndrome


We have all heard the message that “women aren’t biologically inclined or skilled to do tech work” from people around us and from our culture. This has caused many of us to suffer from “The Imposter Syndrome”. But, do you know who the real pioneers of computing are?

Join us virtually on May 18, 2021 as Anne Lee, Nokia Bell Labs Technology Strategy and Architecture CTO Partner, will introduce you to the women who pioneered computing and alter your whole perspective and sense of belonging in Tech. You will also come away with concrete ways to profoundly change Tech for the next generation.

Registration is required and it's open to everyone.

The Pioneers of Computing and The Imposter Syndrome

We have all heard the message that “women aren’t biologically inclined or skilled to do tech work” from people around us and from our culture. This has caused many of us to suffer from “The Imposter Syndrome”. But, do you know who the real pioneers of computing are?

Join us virtually on May 18, 2021 as Anne Lee, Nokia Bell Labs Technology Strategy and Architecture CTO Partner, will introduce you to the women who pioneered computing and alter your whole perspective and sense of belonging in Tech. You will also come away with concrete ways to profoundly change Tech for the next generation.

Biography:

ANNE Y. LEE is a Bell Labs Fellow currently working as a Bell Labs CTO Partner on Technology Strategy and Architecture supporting the CTO and CEO by analyzing the evolution of key technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence) and the overall network architecture to identify new directions for the industry and the impact and requirements on the company's portfolio. Prior to this, Anne was the CTO of IMS Innovations. In this role, she initiated and drove next generation IP communications solutions such as WebRTC as well as worked on creating the vision and initiating the work for future IP communications. She has also previously worked in both the Wireless CTO and Wireline CTO organizations. Anne has over 30 years of experience at Nokia (AT&T, Lucent Technologies, Alcatel-Lucent, and Nokia). She is the original IMS technical team leader for Lucent Technologies working closely with the standards team from the beginning – circa 1999 – to pioneer the multi-access, globally interoperable IP communications system being deployed worldwide today. 2019 was the 20th anniversary of IMS with over a billion devices deployed utilizing VoLTE, VoWiFi, fixed voip, and RCS services. IMS will continue to evolve forward towards 5G to provide Vo5G/VoNR.


Anne became a Bell Labs Fellow in 2005. She is an electrical engineer and computer scientist by training and a technologist at heart.
