“A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements.

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.”

Ada's List x Kaspersky Webinar

We're delighted to be bringing you this virtual panel event in partnership with Kaspersky - who we collaborated with on the 2021 Women in Tech Report.

Over the last two years, we have seen a number of positive steps made towards gender diversity with remote work presenting another encouraging change as we have seen gender equality being improved among teams that work remotely. However, with all the progress achieved there are still many things that need to be improved in order to reach true gender equality.

Join us at the live event to discuss the findings of Kaspersky’s latest report Where are we now? Understanding the evolution of women in technology, both from a business and academic perspective. We will talk about how women perceive the industry and the opportunities available to them, as well as challenges due to the ongoing global pandemic.

#FollowAdas Campaign

We've already had such a fantastic response to our #FollowAdas campaign and can't wait to feature some of our members over the 2 week period. We want to know what this year's IWD hashtag #ChooseToChallenge means to you.

This is a great opportunity for yourself/your business to be featured over our community and social media channels. The response to our #FollowAdas campaign has been really popular, so we aim to continue featuring our Ada's List members in our community and over socials after the 2 week IWD period is over, as part of an ongoing campaign.
