Woman in Tech of the Week (10/19/16)
The Women of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference
Touting some of the highest-ranking women leaders in technology, The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference is bigger and more influential than ever. The three-day conference is taking place this week in Houston, Texas, founded by two beloved and inspiring women, Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney, as a tribute to Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, a computer scientist and Naval Admiral. Beginning back in 1994 with about 500 women in attendance, this celebration of women in technology has grown to host 15,000 people in attendance this year.
The focus is on women in computing, with the Grace Hopper event sharing career aspirations and mentoring young women trying to break into to a predominately male industry. And because of all the dedicated women who work hard to make this event happen, this week theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, puts The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in the limelight for our Women in Tech feature.
