"You can't be what you can't see"

Join us to help inspire and encourage the next generation of young women into careers in digital and technology.
To celebrate Ada Lovelace Day 2018 Manchester Digital has teamed up with Innovate Her to host an empowering and engaging one-day event - Ada Lovelace: The New Generation

While Ada Lovelace is where it all began we know that current and future generations of women may not initially resonate with her. That's where you come in, as part of our Digital Futures programme we are hosting an event to celebrate and showcase the diversity of amazing women in tech and their achievements.

You can't be what you can't see. Help us change that. We'll be working with groups of young woman from local Greater Manchester schools and colleges to raise their awareness and exposure to the many faces of women in tech and the many pathways open to them. We also want to enthuse them by getting hands-on with digital skills.

Calling all women in tech: Are you or your employer a member of Manchester Digital? We want to hear from inspirational women in digital and tech roles who want to help inspire and empower young women to consider a career in our industry whilst helping them discover what their ‘possible’ is. We are building an Inspiration Wall and are looking for a diverse range of 'Digital Her' real role models to add their profiles to help us with this event and future activities with young woman across Greater Manchester.  

Want to become a Digital Her real role model? Sign up here.

Format of the day:

  • Invite only  breakfast roundtable
  • Student arrival
  • Meet & greet
  • Workshops
  • Q&A

What is Ada Lovelace Day?

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.
