Grace Hopper Conference - Supporting Women in Technology
Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) is a gathering where women technologists come to learn, connect, and find inspiration. Those who attend the Grace Hopper Celebration are provided with an unforgettable experience filled with amazing opportunities, and exceptional content focused around technology. Women come to network, learn, and find community.
Named for Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, who invented the first compiler for a computer programming language, it is a celebration of women who transform technology. Produced by the Anita Borg Institute, GHC aims to recognize, celebrate, and amplify the women in technical fields whose work impacts lives all around the world.
In the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, we believe that engineering is more than a discipline — it’s a mind-set, a way of looking at the world. Through our participation in Grace Hopper, as well as other diversity initiatives, we are hoping to invoke change within the world of engineering by creating a welcoming and diverse culture. We strive to make one of our greatest strengths come from our goals towards equity, inclusion, and diversity.
In an effort to ensure the funding for all female students wishing to attend the 2018 Grace Hopper Celebration, we are asking our community to provide sponsorship. The costs for each student - including airfare, lodging, food, and event registration— will be approximately $1,500.
