Mary Gardiner

I’m an effective leader with an excellent project management history and a strong background in international business, particularly in the United States technology industry. My specialty is long-term strategy and planning, and my background is a technologist and a computer scientist. Most recently, I was co-founder and Deputy Executive Director of the Ada Initiative, a breakthrough not-for-profit advocating for women’s careers in open source software and related fields. In 2016, I plan to return to a role in the technology industry.

See my LinkedIn profile for full details.


I am available as a speaker, panellist and trainer in the area of women in open technology and culture, particularly in Sydney, see my speaking page and the Ada Initiative’s presentation information for my past presentations. Email me if you are interested in me appearing at your event.
