Melinda Gates is an American philanthropist, former Microsoft employee, and wife of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. She is a co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In September 2016, Melinda announced her desire to begin working on an important issue, the lack of women in technology, saying: “We’re graduating fewer women technologists.
