Ada Lovelace Day

13th October 2020

9.45am- 3:30pm

Online event live streamed via Youtube

We’re so grateful to be delivering this event in partnership with Sky and Leeds City Council. Thanks to them both for generously supporting this event.

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day 2020 with us with a day of inspirational digital, science and technology role models at all levels of their journey.
We are delighted to announce that we have both Dame Stephanie Shirley and Helen Sharman as our keynotes, two women who have broken boundaries in science and technology.
We will also be showcasing upcoming role models, the ones to watch in 2021 onwards, hearing the stories of how they got to where they are today. People often don’t start out where they end up, and the story of how they got there is fascinating.

Lineup of speakers:
*Ava Garside, winner of the Youth Industrial Strategy Competition
*Urenna Okonkwo, founder of Cashmere app
* Sky’s Women In Tech Scholars, interviewed by Debbie Forster, founder of Tech Talent Charter.
*Dame Stephanie Shirley, Successful IT entrepreneur turned ardent philanthropist.
*Emma Trickitt, Head of Diversity & Inclusion in Technology at Sky
*Tom Riordan CBE, chief executive of Leeds City Council
*Helen Sharman, Britain’s first astronaut
