176 years ago, Ada Lovelace, the child of the English poet Lord Byron and Anne Isabella Milbanke wrote the first computer program. Many women after Ada, had a remarkable career and created pioneering systems and platforms. However women still comprise less than the ⅓ of the tech workers.
Lord Byron died in Greece, when Ada was 8 years old, while supporting the Greek War of Independence; and it was her mother, who had also studied science and mathematics, that promoted Ada’s interest in mathematics and logic.
The Women Techmakers Greece Summit is an annual event, for the celebration of the International Women’s Day, organized in the framework of a global event series. Our goals are:
- to recognize how women have influenced with their accomplishments the tech industry and beyond
- to inspire the next generation of women to choose a technology career
- to raise awareness through the power of examples of existing biases and efficient solutions.
We are looking for creative, talented & engaging speakers to provide technical or social-aspect talks and workshops, share their experiences and influence other women fulfilling their career potential in the Technology Industry or organizations to adopt good practises in creating an inclusive working environment.
Please send in your proposal until 19 February 2018. The selection committee will keep you updated about your submission status in due time for you to arrange your presentation.
