October 11, Ada Lovelace Day

Here at Inveniam Group, we take inspiration from our team and those who developed ground-breaking achievements and innovations in the past. In our Barcelona office, we named our meeting rooms after different women in STEM who profoundly affected the technology and society we live in today.  

The meeting rooms are named after Ada Lovelace, the mathematician; Hypatia, the philosopher; and Elissa, the founder and first queen of the Phoenician city-state of Carthage. Inveniam Group chose these women for their achievements, legacies, and inspiration for future generations. 

October 11 is the International Day of Recognition for the achievements of Ada Lovelace. Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer credited as the first-ever computer programmer. From a young age, she worked closely with Charles Babbage, the “father of the computer.” With this education, she became the first person to recognize that the potential of computing machines extended beyond calculations.  

Ada Lovelace Day was founded in 2009 by technologist Suw Charmon-Anderson in response to online discussions about the lack of women speaking at tech conferences. The day was established not only to celebrate women in STEM but also to encourage more women to pursue studies and careers in STEM by increasing the profiles of women already in the industry and creating new role models.
