Our collective is named for English cryptographer and mathematician Joan Clarke. Alongside Alan Turing and others her mathemtical prowess helped defeat the Nazis. Despite her genius and heroism her contributions have remained obscured largely by sexism in the STEM fields. Together with some of the greatest thinkers in the UK in her generation she revolutionized the fields of Computer Science and Mathematics and her contributions have found their way into the everyday lives of people across the world, often without even knowing it. We seek to recognize the work she did through advancing the good technology can accomplish.
