Women in I.T., Providing Diversity, Looking to the Future

Women across Medtronic are helping to lead the company’s information technology group as it looks to help transform the future of healthcare.

To most, it’s an antique computer. But to Dawn Bardot, the Commodore 64 brings back special childhood memories.

“I would write and play programs,” she recalls. “While other kids were making flashcards, I was programming spelling words into the system and testing myself.”

These were the days of 8-bit home computers, BASIC operating systems, and using old television sets as computer monitors.

“Those are good memories,” laughs Dawn. “But I could tell from a young age that I liked to create.”
