Women’s Alliance Potluck and Speaker
Date(s) - 02/05/2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us Tuesday, February 5, at the Fellowship Building for the Women’s Alliance pot-luck dinner and guest speaker Elsie Shutt. A long-time Harvard resident and HUUC member, Elsie will talk about her life when she was a computer programmer and entrepreneur.
In 1957, Elsie founded Computation Incorporated – CompInc -when Massachusetts law required her to quit her job as a software developer at Raytheon after she became pregnant. CompInc pioneered the use of freelance female programmers in
the United States; the company only hired women who worked from home because they were taking care of dependents. Pot-luck supper 6:30, talk 7:30. All are welcome to “Math and Motherhood.”
