Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day | Pocket Gamer.biz

Today is Ada Lovelace Day, an annual celebration of women’s achievements in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The day itself is designed to bring people around the world together to discuss the opportunities and challenges for women in STEM professions and highlight potential role models to encourage more women in these sectors in view of the increasing diversity in the STEM industries.

Who is Ada Lovelace?

Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer and is often recognized as the first woman computer programmer. Known for her work on Charles Babbag’s Analytical Engine, she was the first to recognize that the machine could be used beyond mere computation, and published the first algorithm that such a machine would execute.

As a result, Lovelace is believed to have played a key role in the early history of computing and programming.

Inspirational women celebrate

Today we’d like to highlight just a few of our accomplished speakers who will share their industry insights at upcoming events in November. We asked her for her thoughts, tips and advice on being a woman in STEM and being successful in these areas.

What inspires you most about Ada Lovelace?

Kelly Vero: (Ada was) a woman who dreamed hard enough to ask questions and share answers with a future she would not know. In the world where she was not welcome, she made herself capable, reliable and logical, like the machine she had created from her algorithms.

Never talk yourself out of it. It’s easy to get the feeling that there are a lot of rooms that you don’t belong in – but it’s not true

Vanessa Mullin

They call Ada the poet of science, and somehow this is a sloppy description of a wonderfully inquisitive and talented mind.

If you could give bite-sized advice or words of encouragement to any woman looking to get into a STEM field, what would it be?

Evelyn Mora: Working in technology has been an interesting journey of self-discovery, it showed me how important it is to society that I be a solo female founder, but my experience has shown how insignificant it actually is.

Vanessa Mullin: Never talk yourself out of it. It’s easy to get the feeling that there are a lot of rooms that you don’t belong in – but that’s not true. I believe the only difference between men and women in STEM is that men never question whether they deserve their place at the table.

Regardless of your background or level of education, if you are motivated and passionate enough – every door opens when you push hard enough and when you don’t there is always a window;)

Elinor Schops: Every girl is a superhero. This statement is at the core of our DNA at ZAG. We all have inner strengths that can change our lives. All we need is courage to see our destiny.

Daniella Loftus: In an age of technological acceleration and algorithmic bias, it couldn’t be more important that women shape the future. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of ​​being a STEM woman. Understanding and working technically requires neither a scientific background nor a talent for programming, just an interest in this area and a willingness to learn.

Kelly Vero: If you have a desire to work in STEM but you don’t know how to get in, wonder what Ada would do. Channel your passion and be curious.
