Global Women Program

We’re excited to be piloting the Global Women Technical Leaders Program, where 15 global technical leaders from outside the U.S. are being sponsored to attend GHC. The pilot program is brought to you by the Anita Borg Institute, Qatar Computing Research Institute and TechWomen program.

These global technical leaders will be provided tools and content to take back to their communities and will share their stories of success at GHC.
