Through a variety of sponsorships and the support of the College of IST, the Women in IST Club was proud to be able to offer scholarships to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. The conference was held from October 2nd to 4th in Orlando, Florida! This Scholarship covered conference registration, hotel, and travel to the conference.
The conference was inspired by Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, an early computing pioneer, and was founded in 1994. Since then, it has grown drastically each year to its current size of more than 16,000 attendees! This is the premier conference for women in technology and an incredible opportunity to network with different sponsors.
