A steward or stewardess can be a person employed in attending to the safety and comfort of passengers aboard a ship or an aircraft. In the 1930s, airlines began calling their employees stewardesses (nearly all were female) based on the use of this term on ships. During the 1970s the gender-neutral term flight attendant was adopted. Persons who learned the term before that often still call flight attendants "stewardesses". And still the nickname among flight attendants for themselves is "stew".
In IT, a steward is somebody who is responsible for managing a set of projects, products or technologies and how they affect the IT Organization in which they belong.
