Ada Lovelace, a 19th century English mathematician and writer, is widely considered to be the first computer programmer; Ada Lovelace Day aims to raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by sharing their stories. To honor Ada Lovelace, New York University will be hosting the second annual NYU Ada Lovelace Day event featuring women in STEM.
The event will feature women from a variety of STEM fields sharing how they came to their current career paths and who inspired them along the way. There will be a networking and social hour, as well as a resources table, with representatives from various women in coding groups from around the city. This event is open to ALL and we hope you will join us in promoting women in STEM!
Speakers include: Dr. Maryam Modjaz, Assistant professor in Astrophysics at NYU and science communicator; Paola Mata, iOS developer and co-founder of NYC Tech Latinas; Rebecca Searles, editorial product manager at Sonr and founder of HuffPost Girls in STEM Mentorship Program; and Laurie Wallmark, computer science professor at Raritan Valley Community College and children’s STEM book author.
This event is hosted by the Ghedin Lab, NYU Graduate Women in Science, and the Office for the Dean for Science at NYU and is limited to the first 100 registrants.
