We have sponsored students to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing each year since it began in 2994. This annual event is co-sponsored by the Anita Borg Institute and the Association for Computing Machinery. Every student who has attended has been enriched by the experience of attending a conference that is supportive of women in computing. I have "thank you" notes from students who say things like "I had no idea I could go this far in the IT profession," "it was wonderful meeting so many women who have chosen IT as a career," and "thank you so much for sponsoring me-I know that I've made the right choice in my academic preparation." The IT profession needs people with as many diverse backgrounds to enter into the IT field, and the Anita Borg Institute has been instrumental in providing a forum for women who might otherwise see this profession as a "male field." Some of the students who we have sponsored have gone back to serve as panel presenters, track chairs and mentors and role models to current students.

The Anita Borg Institute is doing great work. They run the fabulous Grace Hopper Conference for Women in Computing that brings together a lot of great women in the industry and helps new women entering the industry to get great jobs at all the tech companies around the country (particularly Silicon Valley). They also do a terrific job sharing resources, ideas, news with their community through their Systers list and their social media activity. Their events are well-run, they are highly professional to deal with as a speaker, and they have a lot of dedication to their cause.

The number of women in computer science and engineering is dwindling. I have felt very alone while pursuiing my doctoral degree of computer science. ABI has provided a venue, GHC, where I can meet with other women in CS, and discuss issues we are currently facing. 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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

GHC09 has resulted in my participation in a global collaborative proposal, networking, and mentoring of other women in the academic pipleline behind me. I am attending, volunteering and presenting at GHC2010.
