AnitaB.org’s Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) brings together the brightest lights among women in computing – both established leaders and young up-and-comers – as well as male allies interested in changing the tech culture to be more inclusive and reflective of diversity. Now that this has become a hot-button issue that companies like Google, Facebook and LinkedIn are coming under intense scrutiny for, industry leaders are clamoring to learn how they can do a better job of recruiting and retaining a thriving female workforce.
This has brought unprecedented demand for entry to GHC 2014, with attendance growing 70 percent from the previous year to over 8,000 technologists from more than 60 countries and 800 organizations. While we’re thrilled about the growing momentum and opportunity to make real impact, capacity is maxed out and we’ve regretfully had to turn away people eager to attend and learn from our brilliant lineup of speakers.
But if that’s you, don’t fret. We’re featuring keynote presentations as well as highlighted sessions each day of GHC streaming LIVE from Phoenix from October 8-10. You can also go back and replay the Livestream sessions afterwards.

And, of course, it’s never too late to start planning for 2015…mark your calendars for GHC taking place October 14 -16, 2015 in Houston, TX!
