Technical Women and Ada Lovelace Day, Tuesday, March 24
By user12614196 on Mar 24, 2009
Today Tuesday, March 24 is Ada Lovelace Day, an international day of blogging to draw attention to women excelling in technology.
Recent research by psychologist Penelope Lockwood discovered that women need to see female role models more than men need to see male ones and we could address the issue by highlighting the women in technology that we look up to. So to be part of this initiative, all you need to do is to sign the pledge. It doesn’t matter how new or old your blog is, what gender you are, what language you blog in, or what you normally blog about - everyone is invited.
If you blog, you can add your post to the Ada Lovelace Day mashup at http://ada.pint.org.uk/add.php so it will show up in the list.
If you'd like to participate but don't have a blog of your own, you can add to the comments at http://findingada.com/blog/2009/03/23/ada-lovelace-day-home-for-lost-posts/ (short url: http://is.gd/owGK)
