The 2019 European Ada Awards are organised by the Digital Leadership Institute and its partners, and have been an official pledge to the
Grand Coalition for Digital Skills and Jobs in Europe since 2012.This year, the European Ada Awards enjoy  patronage from Ms. Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society.

Commissioner Gabriel message “We must fully unlock women’s potential in bringing a boost to the digital economy. It is time to deliver for young girls, women, all our citizens and businesses. Our Digital Europe will be inclusive, competitive and dynamic with their valuable contribution.”

The Awards aim to increase the number of digitally-skilled girls and women around the world, and help close the digital skills gap by
recognising girls and women who have distinguished themselves in digital studies and careers, and organisations that help to increase
the participation of girls and women in the digital sector. The Ada Awards recognise deserving candidates in three categories:
• Digital Girl of the Year
• Digital Woman of the Year
