The trophies are in, and so are the votes from the judges! But you’ll have to join us Tuesday night, March 26 at @civicnola in downtown #NewOrleans for the 4th annual Ada Lovelace Awards to find out who wins!

With nearly 90 #womenintech nominated, from across the #GulfSouth region, it was no easy feat to determine who should win. We couldn’t have done it without the help of our esteemed panel of judges: 
The #SoftwareEngineer category was judged by Tanya Lattner, President & COO of the LLVM Foundation, a nonprofit supporting the #opensource software project LLVM. Investor & founder of Nashville-based ModernCapital, Monique Villa, judged the #TechFounder category. Vignesh Ramesh and @elainecchao, who’ve both led extensive careers at @adobe, judged the #UIUX Designer and #ProductManager categories, respectively. Alaina Percival, CEO of @womenwhocode, judged the #DigitalMarketer category, and award-winning leader & ex-developer @_nirushika_ judged the #STEM Educator category.

We created 4 pillars for the judges to score each nominee on: Impact, Innovation, Leadership, and Community. It was essential to us that the selection process was more than a mere popularity contest or a quick assessment of who has had the most financial success or who has worked at the most well-known company.

To find out who wins, join us at at 7:30 p.m. this Tuesday 3/36 for #AdaAwards19, as part of @hellonoew & #NOEW2019! The link to RSVP is in our profile.
