Event Details

Women smilingYou are invited to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day with us!  Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of raising the profile of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), inspired by Countess Ada Lovelace, the world's first computer programmer.

We're throwing a party in San Francisco so you can meet more women in STEM, get inspired by fascinating women in science, and have a great time!

Ada Lovelace Day San Francisco is co-sponsored by the Ada Initiative, the Wikimedia Foundation, and the Mozilla Foundation.  The Ada Initiative supports women in open source software, Wikipedia, and similar areas.  The Wikimedia Foundation supports the Wikipedia project and other free knowledge projects.  The Mozilla Foundation works to promote openness, innovation, and participation on the Internet, including developing the Firefox browser.  Together, we're working to change the culture of open technology and culture to be more welcoming to women.

Most of this event will be mingling and SHORT talks about Ada Lovelace and our work to support women in STEM.  If you'd like to write about your favorite woman in STEM for Ada Lovelace Day, you are welcome to bring your laptop and spend a few minutes blogging or improving her article on Wikipedia (we'll help!). 

We will provide light snacks and drinks.  People of all genders and interests are welcome to attend!

If your organization would like to support this event for women in engineering, technology, science, and mathematics, a limited number of sponsorships are available.  Email contact@adainitiative.org to learn more.
