Event description

Description

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration day for the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in these areas, and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.

Every year, people around the world organize their own events for Ada Lovelace Day. The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences is excited to join this important celebration and, together with Ryerson University, organize our own Ada Lovelace Day in Toronto. We will have a keynote talk given by an outstanding female scientist, Professor Lila Kari, University Research Chair at School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo.

The talk will be followed by a moderated panel on emerging research opportunities, diversity, and inclusion. After that, attendees will have an opportunity to meet and network with the keynote speaker and panellists over an informal reception.
