Venue Partner: The IET
I’m delighted to announce that The IET, one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community, is supporting us this year by becoming our Venue Partner for Ada Lovelace Day Live!
The IET run the prestigious IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Award, the Mary George Memorial Prize for Apprentices and, in conjunction with the Women’s Engineering Society, the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Prize. Aimed at early career professional women, aged between 18 and 35, and working in the UK, nominations for this year’s awards are still open, with a deadline of 30 June 2016.

We are very excited to be holding Ada Lovelace Day Live! in the newly refurbished Kelvin Lecture Theatre, and strongly suggest that you save the evening of Tuesday, 11 October and be ready to snap up tickets when they go on sale!
Sponsor: Ada Diamonds
I’m also thrilled to introduce you to another new sponsor, Ada Diamonds, who use cutting-edge technology to produce bespoke, sustainable, and conflict-free diamond jewellery. Their diamonds are “grown by scientists in labs around the world and are chemically identical to mined diamonds, but socially and environmentally superior to Earth-extracted diamonds”.
Ada Diamonds does not just use conflict-free lab-grown diamonds, they also only use “ethically sourced metals of the highest purity”. Their Ada Collection features earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings in a variety of modern and traditional designs.
Ada Diamonds are possibly our most glamorous sponsor so far, and we’re looking forward to perhaps one day seeing their diamonds in person!
