LookFar’s President, Chris Reade, dreamed up the Ada Lovelace Award in 2015. The father of a young daughter, he was struck by how few prominent female role models he knew in science and technology. 👩‍💻 The awards are named after Ada Lovelace, the Victorian-era mathematician and writer widely regarded as the world’s first computer programmer. This year, in recognition of the many impactful ways that women play a role in the tech community, LookFar has expanded the 3rd annual event to offer awards in four distinct categories: Computer Engineer, Tech Leader, Digital Marketer, and STEM Educator. 👩🏾‍🔬 Additionally, LookFar is expanding the awards to recognize the accomplishments of women across the Gulf South region, including Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. 🏆 Nominate your favorite #womenintech today, via the link in our profile!
On this 12th anniversary of the day Hurricane Katrina made landfall, we’re looking back on how far we’ve come, and thinking of all of our friends to the west. To everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey, we’re here for you. ⚜️ New Orleanians are springing into action with ways to help. @dirtycoast and @fleurty_girl have designed t-shirts with proceeds benefitting @houstonfoodbank and @feedingtexas, respectively. (Swipe left to see pics of the tees.) 🐶 If you’re an animal lover like we are, you can donate money, adopt, or foster an animal. Local organizations like @laspca, @animalrescueno and @zeusrescues are working with animal shelters in affected areas to find fosters and lend a hand. 🤝 We know all too well that the recovery process is just beginning. We’re brainstorming other ways to directly help our friends in Texas and Southwest Louisiana. Together, we are #GulfCoastStrong. 📷 Art by @miss_malaprop
We’re excited to announce LookFar’s new Director of Marketing, Mallory Whitfield, aka @miss_malaprop. 👩🏻‍🎤 She comes to us from fellow New Orleans company @fscinteractive and hosts a weekly podcast called @badasscreatives.
