Submissions are now open for the annual Ada Lovelace Awards, a celebration of the accomplishments of women across the Gulf South, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas.
The Ada Lovelace Awards were launched in 2015 by LookFar, a full-service software development studio based in New Orleans. It’s a stand-alone nonprofit that covers six categories: Software Engineer, Product Manager, Tech Founder, UI/UX Designer, Digital Marketer, and STEM Educator.
Now in its fifth year, the Ada Lovelace Awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday, March 24 during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.
“The Ada Lovelace Awards aim to challenge the inequities that exist in the tech industry by showcasing and celebrating the achievements reached by women despite the many obstacles they have faced – on all fronts of discrimination, not just gender,” explains LookFar, organizers of the event. “We are growing a community of women who will lift each other up and mentor one another.”
