Number 6: Regina Dugan
Keep dreaming, girls, and with hard work you could make your dreams come true just like Regina Dugan. Today she is Facebook’s vice president of Engineering, for the Building 8 group. Dugan leads Building 8, the team responsible for Facebook’s moonshot projects. Building 8 is fairly secretive but we know her mission is to turn R&D into products, and fast.
Prior to Facebook, Regina led the Advanced Technology and Projects team at Google and she served as a member of the senior leadership team at Google-owned Motorola Mobility.
However, she may be best known for her time as a director of DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), the first woman to lead DARPA.
Thank you, Business Insider, for this great list of powerhouse engineers!
