Ada Scotland Can’t Compute Gender Gap

With women making up just 20% of jobs in tech, the soon-to-launch Ada Scotland Festival is creating a movement to address gender imbalance in Computing Science.

Ada Scotland is working to bring organisations together to work collaboratively in celebration of Ada Lovelace, commonly considered to be the world's first computer programmer.

The Festival grows out of a Scottish Informatics & Computing Science Alliance (SICSA) workshop, organised by the University of Glasgow's School of Computing Science, to address the gender imbalance in computing.

Pulled together with a real focus on collaboration, there's input from several of Scotland's biggest Computing departments, teachers, Mora Consulting and we'll hear from dressCode founder Toni Scullion on the importance of addressing the gender gap.

You can follow along with the Ada Scotland Festival as more information is released over on Twitter.

The festival launches on Tuesday 13th October, Ada Lovelace Day, and will run throughout the following week.

Together with Mora Consulting we've relaunched a special digital-focused Campaign For Wellbeing Challenge as part of the Ada Scotland Festival.
