This is our 5th Ada's List Conf and our 5th call for proposals. Each year, we go out to our brilliant community to have them pitch to us about what's on their mind, new products they are launching, to tell a personal story, and so on.
Each year, the feedback we get is the content is so good. how do you do this? The answer is easy -it's not us, Ada's List, it's our awesome, inspiring community of Adas.
We are thrilled to announce our 2020 lineup and we're pleased to say, once again, the Adas have outdone themselves with their proposals. From almost 100 proposals, we've selected an initial 20 confirmed talks and panel events from female founders and leaders, discussing topics including ReStructure, Sustainability, Product + Marketing, Tech, and Career. These fantastic speakers will be joining Martha Lane Fox and Ronda Železný-Green.
