Description

This October, as the world celebrates Ada Lovelace Day, Ada’s List will be celebrating it’s 4th Birthday and recognising Lovelace’s contribution to the world of internet and science with our very own Ada’s List Conf 2017.

For the second year, we would like to invite you to join us in London for a day of talks and mingling, to share your stories of innovation and change, and reflect on how we are changing communities, our workplaces, and the industry for the better.

If you are an Ada’s List member, or a woman in tech who isn’t yet a part of our community but interested in our agenda of change, do join us. This event is also open to people of all genders, and we welcome everyone with an interest in our goal of improving the technology industry.

Expect a lot of stimulating discussion, some inspiration and a bit of fun networking.

We look forward to seeing you there!
