The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. It is produced by the Anita Borg Institute and presented in partnership with ACM.
Karen Holtzblatt and Carol Farnsworth of Facebook will be co-leading a workshop on Retaining High Tech Women: Once They’re in the Door. They’ll be presenting the latest results of the Women In Tech project.
Karen will also be chairing two sessions in the HCI track:
- Ask questions, lots of questions: A workshop for practicing building beautiful presentations in Google Slides and giving design critique
- Designing for Driving Change: Economically Empowering Women and Girls Around the World Through Technology
Every year, GHC brings together the community of women technologists, the best minds in computing and increased visibility for the contributions of women to computing. In 2015 there were almost 12,000 attendees from 63 countries, with over 1,300 companies present.
Karen & Carol are honored to be selected from over 1,000 submissions to this very important conference.
