Ada Lovelace Week 2020
I was a part of the organizing team for Ada Lovelace Week 2020. Over the course of several months, we put together a week of events to celebrate gender diversity in technology. Though we had originally envisioned an event in person - we decided to put on a series of talks and panels due to COVID-19 constraints.
You can read more about what the event entailed here: ada2020.plopes.org and coverage by the UChicago Physical Science Division here.
We were really proud to host a series of incredible women and non-binary technologists. You can watch all the videos of the events here on Youtube.
