The first talk 'On White Privilege' in our ReStructure series was a huge hit. Almost 300 people joined us to listen, learn and act as our incredible panel discussed privilege, intersectionality, systemic racism, pronouncing peoples' names right (no excuses) and much more! Here's a round up of the best tweets (#AntiracistAdas) and homework.
Last week, Ada’s List hosted a breakfast with Rise London on the topic of how to increase female representation in financial technology, and how to make the industry more diverse and inclusive. The group didn’t mince words, and we had an honest and frank discussion, the headlines of which I think a lot of people will benefit from.
Last week, on the occasion of our 3rd birthday and Ada Lovelace Day 2016, Ada’s List hosted our first ever mini-conference. We were really happy with how it went off, the quality of the speakers, and the feedback we’ve got so far (which no doubt will keep coming for a bit!). Here’s a summary of what went down:
This October, as the world celebrates Ada Lovelace Day, Ada’s List will be celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday and recognising Lovelace’s contribution to the world of internet and science, with the launch of the Ada’s List Conf 2016. Join us for an afternoon of talks and mingling on October 14th Friday, from 3.30 to 9.30pm.
Last week, during London Technology Week, Ada’s List was proud to organise a panel discussion on a topic close to our hearts: how to increase the number of people of colour (especially women) in the technology industry.
