These are women whose inventions, research and/or processes have created ways for human beings to function at greater capacity. This category was inspired by the work of the famous inventor Douglas C. Engelbart who wrote about “the co-evolution of human and tool systems” and “augmenting intelligence.” Developments in technology, psychology, learning and culture work together to improve the planet, with technology augmenting (rather than replacing) human capability. Thus, in this category we include leaps in technology (e.g., computers, apps), in psychology (e.g., understanding that well-being occurs within a family/community system, not just an individual).
