NCWIT is Proud to be Part of the 2019 Grace Hopper Celebration
The Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) is co-presented by AnitaB.org with the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM). Every year, women technologists and the best minds in computing convene to highlight the contributions of women to computing. The celebration results in collaborative proposals, networking, and mentoring for our attendees. GHC presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industry, academia, and government. The celebration also offers professional development through a variety of activities. Co-founded by Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney in 1994 and inspired by the legacy of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, the Grace Hopper Celebration brings the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.
