Ada Lovelace has often been regarded as one of the world’s first computer programmers following her documented algorithm in the 19th century.

In celebration of Ada Lovelace Day, ThoughtWorks hosted a special edition By ThoughtWorks event on Tuesday 8 October featuring some incredible women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Our speakers shared their personal career journeys with lots of practical tips on how to navigate the industry at various stages – from graduate to senior leadership and everything in between.

Please take a look at their slides here.

  57. 57. How dare you tell me ‘I am not like most girls’ when those ‘girls’ you refer to are my sisters and mothers, my friends, the very solace and the kindness I have sought when the worst things in my life have happened? How dare you assume I should take that as a compliment and beam at you like it is praise when you are alienating me from the very core of my proudly female being? There are a thousand ways to tell me you love me, and making my sisters small to make me big isn’t one of them. Tell me you love me, but not because I am different. Tell me you love me, just because you do. - Nikita Gill
