Are you interested in connecting with female-identifying technology professionals who want to make positive change in their lives and professions? Join others in the field to discuss the challenges, joy, and lessons learned at AvramCamp, an AdaCamp-inspired event and named in honor of library innovator Henriette D. Avram. This one-day LITA/PLA preconference allows female-identifying individuals, employed in various technological industries, an opportunity to connect with others in the field and to collectively examine barriers to success. Find out more about AdaCamp and the Ada Initiative.

Registration is $25 for both ALA and non-ALA members. Lunch and break refreshments are included in the ticket price. Our workshop space is ADA accessible. Please contact lita@ala.org regarding other needed accommodations.
