Welcome Automattic, Red Hat and MongoDB as AdaCamp's newest sponsors

The Ada Initiative is pleased to welcome our newest Gold sponsors, Automattic and Red Hat, and Bronze sponsor MongoDB to the sponsors of AdaCamp, our conference dedicated to increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture.

Red HatRed Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to develop reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage, and virtualization technologies. The company has more than 6,300 regular, full-time associates and is hiring both remote and office-based positions around the globe. Red Hat recently created the Women in Open Source Award, which Red Hat EVP and Chief People Officer DeLisa Alexander describes as an effort to “shine a spotlight specifically on women who are making important contributions to open source project(s) or the broader open source community.” Red Hat is also the sponsor of the Impostor Syndrome training that will be offered at each AdaCamp in 2014. This is the third year in a row that Red Hat is sponsoring AdaCamp, after AdaCamp San Francisco and AdaCamp DC. We thank them for renewing their support!

Automattic is a returning sponsor, having also sponsored AdaCamp San Francisco at the Gold level. We thank them for their generous support.

About AdaCamp

AdaCamp is a conference dedicated to increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture: open source software, Wikipedia-related projects, open data, open geo, library technology, fan fiction, remix culture, and more. AdaCamp brings women together to build community, share skills, discuss problems with open tech/culture communities that affect women, and find ways to address them.

In 2014, the Ada Initiative will hold three AdaCamps located in technology hubs on three continents: Portland, Oregon, USA; Berlin, Germany; and Bangalore, India. Applications to AdaCamp Portland are now closed. Applications for AdaCamp Berlin and Bangalore will be open soon.


Your organization has the opportunity to sponsor AdaCamps in 2014 and reach women leaders in open technology and culture on three continents. Contact us at sponsors@adainitiative.org for more information about becoming a sponsor.
