The Grace Hopper conference is being held in Portland this year, and this gives female students here a great opportunity. If you apply and get selected as a student volunteer, and can arrange a place to stay in Portland (eg with friends or relatives), you can go for free. Grace Hopper is a conference for women in computing. It covers both technical and social/personal topics for women in computing. Most people who have gone find it inspiring. It's also a great way to connect with women at all levels in computer science (from just-starting-out students to famous computer science folks in academia and industry), starting a network of friends who you might see again and again over the years, when you go to conferences or eventually go to work for a company.
