Grace Hopper Celebration

Every year, PWiCS sponsors a group of students to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. At the conference, PWiCS members meet other women who are passionate about computer science. They attend inspirational and informative presentations (two years ago and this coming year, one of the keynote speeches was given by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook!). The technical presentations also provide inspiration for their own independent work. The GHC is also a great opportunity to talk to representatives from different companies (in the past, PWiCS members interviewed with Yahoo!, Pixar, Amazon, Lockheed Martin, and many others while at the GHC).
