Attending Grace Hopper

22185722689_1470bfb969_zDr. Wohn and research assistant Mary Schneider had a great time at the 2015 Grace Hopper conference for women in computing. This was the first time for both of them, and they were a part of a larger group of students and faculty who were supported by the BRAID initiative– an initiative led by the Anita Borg Institute and Harvey Mudd College, and funded by Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, CRA and NSF, to increase diversity in computing.

Grace Hopper was a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, be empowered, and learn from great female tech leaders such as Sheryl Sandberg and Megan Smith. The conference also has a huge career fair, making it a must-go event for students, both graduate and undergraduate!
