Ada Lovelace Day Celebration

cornish pasty 7 W Monroe St , Phoenix, AZ (map)


Happy hour with Lightning Talks by local developers discussing their most influential women in tech.

Ada Lovelace Day is held every year on the second Tuesday of October, though it is celebrated around the world all month long. It is an international celebration of Women in Science and Technology and aims to raise the profile of women in STEM by encouraging people around the world to talk about the women whose work they admire. We will be celebrating with a happy hour and Lightning Talks where we discuss the most influential tech women in our own lives.

First, have a think about the women you know or have heard of in tech/science. We’re not looking for everyone to speak about superstars, just someone whom you admire. Perhaps it’s your colleague who does a really good job, or your mum, or a friend. If you stop and think for a while, we’re sure that somewhere in your past or present you’ll find a woman to speak about on Ada Lovelace Day.

To register as a speaker, please reach out to Shannon Gallagher: [masked] (Lightning talks will be no more than 2-3 minutes per speaker)

*NOTE: ALL genders are welcomed and encouraged to participate!
