Patron Programme

The Ada's List Patron Programme is a pay what you can, membership programme hosted on Patreon.

Join us in challenging and changing the tech sector for the better, by becoming an Ada's List patron today.

Whether you're a new or existing member of the Ada's List community looking to receive great additional benefits, or an ally or organisation that is committed to improving the tech sector for women and non-binary people, we have a membership tier for you.


Why we launched our patron programme

We launched this paid membership to focus on extra community management for our existing community, land more members new jobs, and to support the forging of new meaningful connections for our members.

Our focus for the next year and beyond:

- Connecting to more jobs for women in tech
- Fewer women feeling alone in senior positions
-Building better support around women experiencing harassment and bullying

Having a patron programme as well as the Ada's List community means we can include men and allies. By including allies, we can give them content and actions to have them join our members on a journey to creating a more equitable tech sector.

For Allies

We recognise that Allies have a fundamental role in demanding better for women and non-binary people in the tech sector.

Until now, there hasn't been a tangible way for men and allies to support Ada's List and our mission. Whilst the Ada's List Community is exclusively for women and non-binary people in tech, the Ada's List Patron Programme means we can include allies in the work we do.

As an Ally Patron you will be directly supporting the Ada's List mission. You'll also receive our quarterly ally newsletter jam packed with content to help keep your allyship meaningful. And we won't stop there, we're aiming to bring you more great content and access to patron-only events throughout the year.

Join up and bring your colleagues and friends along with you! We are stronger together.


For Organisations

Organisational tiers means that it's even easier for teams for companies to support Ada's List, and gift memberships for their female and nonbinary teammates.

By purchasing an organisational membership, both employees and the company itself receive really great benefits. Individual employees get all of the benefits of our Patron programme; companies receive job posts, are featured on our website, and can support the tech sector in a very tangible way.

We have tiers based on the number of women on your team or in your whole company - up to 5, 15, 30, and 50.


For members

Rest assured, the Ada's List Community as it stands will remain the same - free access for women and non-binary people in tech.

The Patron Programme however, offers new and existing members the opportunity to extend their membership with additional great benefits, including access to an exclusive action focused channel, patron-only events and early access to discounts, offers and partner events. It also means Adas can directly support the Ada's List mission.


Pay It Forward

Members and allies can now pay for an Ada’s List member, who isn’t able to pay for a membership, to receive the benefits of being a Patron. Go to our Patreon page for full info.  

If you are interested in Paying It Forward, please do consider paying annually to ensure members receive the benefits for a full year.
