Grace Hopper Celebration is the premier event for women technologists worldwide organised by AnitaB.org to support and inspire women to further their careers, break boundaries, and transform the world of technology. London AnitaB.org is bringing you a local version of GHC!
Join us for a day of learning and networking, focused on technology, career development, leadership and advancing gender diverse STEAM pioneers in London on Friday, June 15th, 2018 at 155 Bishopsgate, Liverpool Street!
London Hopper x 1 (formerly GHC1) is an immersive event that brings together Women Technologists at all career stages, Industry Organisations ( public and private sector, from software to healthcare to banking), Academia and Key Influencers . It is a great opportunity to build relationships, learn, and advance careers.
The programme includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, as well as workshops and talks by inspiring women from our London WiT community, which will be split into Technical, Professional Development and Community tracks.
By listening to women in technical industries and participating in hands-on workshops, you will gain an insight to the recent technology trends in the city, what it takes to be a successful woman in tech, and tips and stories from women creating technologies that are changing the world.
Our objectives include
- Deliver opportunities and tools that allow women to grow, learn, and develop across the entire technical career path, including student, academic, re-entry, and transitional stages
- Advocate for solutions that benefit women across multiple dimensions, including race, sexual orientation, age, religion, ability, and temperament.
- Champion women technologists in industry and academia by calling for accountability, transparency, and lasting change.
- Shatter cultural perceptions that limit women in their quest to build meaningful careers and claim positions of influence in technology
- Strengthen our Collective, Diverse Voices, Showcase Women Innovators. London Hopper x 1 is to give stage to as many as possible local women to present and discuss their work. Apply to give a talk or lead a workshop!
