As a legal consultant turned techie, Mrs. Macedo has made it a mission to get more women involved in the Tech, Science and Engineering worlds.
"Women are some of the biggest purchasers of technology commercialized goods and yet make up a small amount of the technology industry workforce. I'd like to change this, not only by sharing my story by also by encouraging more women to pursue education in the tech & sciences fields or encourage more women to apply to jobs in the technology industry. To work in tech is not only to program - there are countless high-paying job opportunities - and women should be pursuing more of them"
She hopes to encourage more women to enter the technology field or encourage more women to enter high management positions; which women only represent less than 1/4 of these positions.
Background in Law and Human Resources, fell into the tech industry by coincidence, she has now been integral to the success of a handful of technology companies. Currently COO of Ready Makers INC - the creators of The Ready Games App and the Ready Games Studio.
