We are thrilled to announce that the TechWomen Emerging Leaders will participate in the 2012 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Baltimore this fall, after their three-week mentorship in the Bay Area.
The Anita Borg Institute’s Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) Of Women In Computing Conference is the largest technical conference for women in computing. It aims to recognize the contributions of women in computing and bring their research to the forefront in order to help them engage in collaborative networking and mentoring opportunities. Conference presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industry, academia and government. Top researchers present their work while special sessions focus on the role of women in today’s technology fields.
This year’s theme, “Are We There Yet,” features innovative sessions focused on helping women impact many domains, including key technology areas such as Big Data, security, and social collaboration. This year’s confirmed keynote speakers are Nora Denzel, Senior Vice President of Intuit and Professor Anita K. Jones from the University of Virginia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science. The Conference will take place in Baltimore, Maryland, October 3-6, 2012.
