Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day 2022 at Ada National College for Digital Skills Manchester
11 October @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Three years ago, on Ada Lovelace Day, Ada Manchester was launched by Andy Burnham.
Fast forward two years and we’ve doubled our apprenticeship in take and grown the team.
Come and meet our apprentices, the Ada team, our industry partners and board members to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day and the achievements of women in tech.
Celebrate with us!
Our apprentices will benefit from meeting our wonderful supporters and external guests to hear inspiring stories.
Come and inspire the next generation of diverse digital talent and help yourself to a cake or two.
A selection of afternoon tea delights will be served during the event.
We have been running two campaigns this year… We’ll share this year’s Digital Heroes and Tell Your Story, stories on the day.
Emily Abbots from Culture Shift will also be sharing her story of her journey into tech.
Emily Abbott (pictured below) is the Chief of Staff for Manchester-based business Culture Shift, a tech for good organisation that believe in a future world of work and study that is safe, happy and supportive for everyone, everywhere. Emily will be sharing experiences of her journey into the world of tech from the perspective of an Ops person. From discovering her passion for working in tech start-ups, to overcoming gender and disability stereotypes to achieve her goals of operating in an executive role for a scaling, mission-led tech business.
See you soon!
My Digital Hero (Watch last year’s submissions in the video)
This campaign seeks to highlight inspirational women leaders in tech and help others learn more about their contributions to digital industries.
Together we will celebrate role models in the tech sector and in turn, inspire more young women to pursue a digital education and consider a career in tech with Ada.
Tell Your Story
This campaign seeks to highlight women in tech and help others learn more about their experiences in pursuing a digital career path.
The most inspirational way to engage a 14-18 year old is through personal connections.
By sharing your story, young women will be able to relate to you as someone who looks like them and in turn inspire them to pursue a digital education and/or career.
