Call for speakers
Hopper x 1 (formerly known as GHC/1) is organised and sponsored by AnitaB.org. Inspired by the world’s largest gathering of women technologists called the Grace Hopper Celebration, the London conference in June is powered by the community for women in tech at every stage of education and career.
Are you interested in speaking at the HopperX1 London 2018? Our tracks offer a wide-range of opportunities for women technologists. The conference will cover three tracks and we invite speaker and workshop proposals to create a day of education and empowerment. We encourage you to submit intermediate and advanced level content.
