2021 Sponsorship Opportunities 

Thank you for your interest in hiring, retaining and promoting diverse engineering talent

About the Conference

“Adies” are students, interns and alums of Ada Developers Academy, “Ada”. AdieCon was established in 2020 with a mission to strengthen the ever growing Ada alum community. In 2020 our speaker lineup offered diverse perspectives from over twenty engineering managers to first time job seekers. The inaugural event was a sold out success with 250 diverse software engineers in attendance. AdieCon will be an annual event that grows with the community, finding ways to support and promote the career development of Adies.

We will continue our mission in 2021, taking into account the COVID-19 reality, by hosting a virtual event. This event will feature talks on career advancement, technology and D&I topics. We will also leverage our virtual environment to provide in-depth breakout sessions for attendees in various stages of their careers. Our mission with this conference is to strength our network and provide connections that advance careers. Supporting AdieCon is your opportunity to be a part of the diversity retention and promotion conversation in the tech industry.
