Ada Lovelace Day is a day dedicated to celebrating women in STEM, founded by Suw Charman-Anderson 8 years ago as a blog event telling stories about women in tech. The now international celebration champions women of the past, present, and future, across the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
I first got involved with Ada Lovelace Day in 2013 when I took part in a Wikipedia Editathon. I then co-authored a chapter of ‘More Passion for Science’at about Ati Hermelin. This year I attended the Ada Lovelace Day Live event in London, and the entire evening blew me away! I was excited to be invited, and enthralled from start to finish.
