Bringing women and conference organisers together

by Suw on October 14, 2008

Welcome to Finding Ada, a conference for women – and men – in tech who are interested in learning how to write, plan and give presentations, and who want to meet conference organisers and understand how to get onto the conference circuit.

We all know that there are rarely enough women speaking at conferences, and it’s time to do something about it! Finding Ada hopes to help women gain confidence in their speaking ability and draw attention to the huge number of smart, knowledgeable women in the tech industry who are just itching to get up on stage and share their expertise.

You’ve found Finding Ada right at the beginning of the event planning process. The conference will be held some time in 2009, somewhere in London, but you’ll have to join our mailing list or follow us on Twitter to find out more! We’ll let you know just as soon as we have more details.

Sponsors
We already have interest from various potential sponsors. If you would like to join them in supporting Finding Ada, please email Suw Charman-Anderson.

Hi, I would like to comment on my best friend Shirley who is a computer expert and on disability because of Multiple Sclerosis. She is tougher than any man I have ever met and a credit to humanity for the manner in which she conducts herself. To combat her pain and looming depression, which is a constant with this condition., she recently got a horse and is taking riding lessons (on days when she can physically) She will try anything, lives every day for her family and friends and is an inspiration to others with problems. She asks for nothing, gives everything and never complains. I am proud she counts me as one of her closest friends and she doesn’t know she is in my very small Pantheon of heroes.
