Heartbeat of a GHC
- It is a CELEBRATION.
- CONVENE and unite women from industry, academia and students, along various axis.
- DIVERSITY (ethnicity, experience, organizations) in speakers and attendees
- Known as TECHNICAL conference brand. Important because women get permission to attend & present at tech conferences.
- DISABILITY & UNDERREPRESENTED MINORITIES friendly conference (internationally may be more difficult to accommodate for all disabilities)
- FREE CHILDCARE important to reinforce this (internationally may be less feasible).
- Inclusive of MALE ADVOCATES but still showcasing women in technology. (Making sure there is always a reasonable balance)
