Description

LookFar’s Ada Lovelace Awards are given yearly to the women who have made the biggest impact on our region’s tech community.

Nearly 90 women from across the Gulf South region (including Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas) were nominated for the 4th annual Ada Lovelace Awards, which offers awards in six distinct categories: Software Engineer, Tech Founder, Product Manager, UI/UX Designer, Digital Marketer, and STEM Educator. A full list of nominees can be found HERE.

The 4th annual Ada Lovelace Awards will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at the Civic Theatre (510 O'Keefe Avenue) in downtown New Orleans as part of New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.

VIP Patron Party tickets include reserved seating and access to the exclusive Patron Party with open bar from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The VIP Patron Party will be followed by the general admission reception (with cash bar) at 7:30 p.m. and the awards ceremony at 8:00 p.m.

The awards ceremony will be hosted by local comedian Mary-Devon Dupuy, with a powerful keynote speech from Kimberly Walker LaGrue, New Orleans' Chief Information Officer. Ms. LaGrue is a New Orleans native and the first woman to serve as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the City of New Orleans and head of the Office of Information Technology and Innovation.
