Joining the Ada Lovelace Day with the launch of a mentoring program, a school contest and actions to reduce the Wikipedia gender gap

As part of the Gender & ICT program promoted within the Maria de Maeztu Strategic Research Program on data-driven knowledge extraction of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies at UPF, we are proud to support the Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) with several activities: Wisibilizalas, MENTOS and ViquidonesUPF

10.10.2016

 

Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day 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.

 

As part of the Gender & ICT program promoted within the Maria de Maeztu Strategic Research Program on data-driven knowledge extraction of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies at UPF, we are proud to support the celebration with the launch of several activities:

 

  • Wisibilizalas: Contest for high schools in Spain to work on profiles of women contributing nowadays to information and communication technologies in Spain, with the support of institutions such as the UPF Council, Google and Eurecat. https://portal.upf.edu/documents/3854030/0/twitter.png/d652e090-33b9-44ef-a94b-a730966dd884?t=1475323613045@wisibilizalas
