Ada Lovelace Day

Celebrating the achievements of *women in STEMM

Discoveries and study in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) have all done amazing things to enrich the world that we live in. Women* have played an exceptionally important but under-recognised role in STEMM throughout history. One such woman was Ada Lovelace.

 

Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) celebrates the achievements of women in STEMM. For many years, Thoughtworks has been supporting ALD by highlighting role models to inspire the next generation. In celebration of Ada Lovelace Day, hear stories of women in leadership. Our Thoughtworkers and guest speakers will talk about their unique pathways into leadership, including their proudest achievements, their learnings, the mistakes they made, and the wisdom they gained along the way.

 

*Thoughtworks aims to inspire all women (including all who identify and/or experience oppression as a woman) looking to advance their STEMM career.
