Every year, dedicated faculty and academic staff from around the world accompany students from their institutions to GHC to help them connect with an inspiring community of women technologists, engage with cutting-edge technical content, and learn valuable skills to further their careers.

As GHC continues to expand, we have developed programming just for academics so you can enjoy the opportunities alongside your students. GHC’s special sessions for academics aim to bring you the most up-to-date content on topics such as: navigating a career in academia, teaching strategies to deal with enrollment booms, and creating diverse and inclusive learning environments, to name a few.

Seize this amazing opportunity to connect with a global community of academics and join us for our biggest GHC yet!
