PalominoDB CEO Laine Campbell says, “Palomino supports the Ada Initiative because they are a woman-owned non-profit that is always striving to bring more women into their technology, support and leadership teams. As CEO, I’ve experienced the challenges of breaking into tech as a woman, as well as encouraged other women to grow, contribute and participate in the technical ecosystem. We’re excited to support and contribute to the Ada Initiative with its focus on open source community and technology.”

We are thrilled to be partnering with PalominoDB to support women business owners and founders. Our Impostor Syndrome training program helps women more accurately judge their abilities, and our AdaCamp unconference introduces women to other open tech/culture entrepreneurs and potential co-founders.
