2011 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

Grace Hopper Celebration posterThe OSU School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is a sponsor of the 2011 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. We're excited about the opportunity for you to join us at this event!

Computing is everywhere and is incorporated into just about everything we do. This national conference, being held in Portland this year, is an opportunity for women from all majors to learn from and network with women who are making a difference through their work in computing.

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers present their current work, while special sessions focus on the role of women in today’s technology fields, including computer science, information technology, research and engineering.

Attending GHC helped me discover that there are other women like me. While each year has been different some things are always the same - the women at grace hopper are inspiring!
