“Hidden Figures” Film Inspires Cleveland’s Next Generation of Women & Minorities in Tech Fields

“Hidden Figures” Film Inspires Cleveland’s Next Generation of Women & Minorities in Tech Fields CLEVELAND, OH (January 6, 2017)   Most of us know about John Glenn and Neil Armstrong – but few know that a group of brilliant African-American women mathematicians working at NASA helped Glenn become the first American to orbit the earth in the historic 1962 launch in the space race against Russia. That’s the untold story behind the new 21st Century Fox film Hidden Figures, released nationwide on January 6. Here in Cleveland, the film shines a light on the growing need to include women and minorities in science, technology, engineering and math – particularly in IT and software development.
