We’re very excited to announce that Ada Lovelace Day will once again be sponsored by ARM! Not only that, but they have agreed to be the official ambassador to Ada Lovelace Day for the semiconductor industry on a long term basis.
As one of our major sponsors, ARM are supporting the development and delivery of a new educational resource pack for use in schools worldwide (about which more soon!). They will also be helping us to inspire girls and young women to engage in STEM subjects through another project that we’ll announce later in the year. We will be working closely with ARM to help us to spread the word about women in STEM and inspire the next generation of female scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
“Ada Lovelace Day provides an excellent opportunity to inform and encourage women and girls to pursue and explore careers in STEM subjects,” said Jenny Duvalier, executive vice president, people, ARM. ”Our partnership will raise awareness that a career in engineering is an exciting and well-rewarded option for women as well as help elevate the profile this inspiring organisation and celebration globally. We are positive that this long-term partnership will provide engagement for women to kick-start their careers and become successful engineers of the future. Being headquartered in Cambridge where Ada’s seminal work on the Difference Engine took place, adds an additional resonance to our partnership.”
“I’m thrilled to have ARM as a key partner in Ada Lovelace Day, supporting our rapidly expanding efforts to inspire and support women in STEM around the world,” said Suw Charman-Anderson, founder, Ada Lovelace Day. “We look forward to collaborating with ARM to develop educational resources that will inspire the next generation of girls to consider science, technology, engineering or maths as a future career.”
ARM is the world’s leading supplier of semiconductor intellectual property. They design and develop energy efficient processors and technologies for a range of different applications and they very generously supported Ada Lovelace Day Live! 2014. We are pleased to welcome them back!
