Ada Lovelace Award Nominee Categories
This year, in recognition of the many impactful ways that women play a role in the Gulf South tech community, we have expanded the original event to offer awards in four distinct categories:
Computer engineers follow in the footsteps of Ada Lovelace by advancing design, development, and research pertaining to both software and hardware. Nominees for the Computer Engineer Award exist in all different industries: medical, logistics, manufacturing, visual effects, and many more.
These women are the startup founders and CEOs that drive our cities forward. Whether they’re active in the trenches of a startup or lending their expertise to other ventures, nominees for the Tech Founder Award are passionate trailblazers and change-makers.
Digital Marketers give voice to tech and business. Nominees for the Digital Marketer Award are women who have distinguished themselves as experts in customer acquisition, SEO, paid search, social media, and growth hacking.
Educators elevate and support the next generation of talent in their cities. Nominees for the STEM Educator Award have taken particular strides to enable girls in STEM or further empower other women seeking to enter technological fields.
Nominations are now closed. Join us on October 13th to see who wins!
This year, we have expanded the awards to recognize the accomplishments of women from across the Gulf South region, including Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. While LookFar is the producer of the Ada Lovelace Awards, all nominations came from members of the community. Click here to view all the nominees.
