It’s Ada Lovelace Day on Tuesday! Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths. As part of the celebration Digital Science has organised an online panel discussion of gender issues with STEMwomen.net.

The panel consists of Digital Science’s very own Amy Brand, Sara Abdulla from Nature, and Fred Guterl and Mariette DiChristina from Scientific American.

Topics of discussion will include peer review and author name ordering, the impact of social media and blogging on gender imbalances, the impact of new technologies and digital tools on gender imbalances, the media’s representation of scientists and issues around science education.

The event will last 30 minutes and it will take place at 9.30pm UK time / 4.30pm EDT on Tuesday 14th October. You can tune in below:

Digital Science is also proud to be sponsoring Ada Lovelace Day Live! at the Royal Institution. More details about that event can be found here.
