LES MARGARET
#lesMargaret Awards, given by our Margaret Foundation, in honor of Margaret Hamilton, the renowned NASA software engineer, rewards creativity, innovation, women’s creativity, and their courage! The awards shed a light on women, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs who are changing the world with projects that answer to the world's most pressing challenges.

“Never let fear get in your way! Do not be afraid to continue even when the so-called "experts" say it's impossible. Do not be afraid to be alone, to be different, to deceive yourself, to do and recognize your mistakes, because only those who dare to fail greatly can accomplish great things.” Margaret Hamilton
