Event Details

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Lady Ada Lovelace, credited with being the world's first computer-programmer, Amazon Web Services and the Digital Leadership Institute are thrilled to welcome you to the third Ada 200 best practices roundtable of 2015 on getting more girls and women into digital studies and careers.  For this event - an informal lunch gathering for invited guests - we have the unique opportunity of exploring the question from a trans-Atlantic perspective with an introductory message by Ms. Teresa Carlson, Vice President Worldwide Public Sector at Amazon Web Services.

Ms. Teresa Carlson is vice president of worldwide public sector at Amazon Web Services where she is responsible for operations, strategy, sales and business development. She was previously vice president of federal government business at Microsoft, among several other positions, and worldwide vice president of marketing and business development for Lexign Incorporated. Before moving into IT, Carlson spent nearly 15 years in healthcare. Among her many honors is the March of Dimes Heroines in Technology Lifetime Achievement Award.  She is also one of the Washingtonian’s 100 Most Powerful Women.
