We are raising money to support female computing students to attend the Grace Hopper Women in Computing Conference to be held in Orlando, Florida, from October 2 - 5, 2019.
This annual conference attracts over 20,000 women in computing internationally (the largest gathering of women technologists in the world!). Attending this conference will give us an amazing opportunity to expand our knowledge, connect with other women in STEM, and also provide us a platform to network with professionals as well. Attendance may also lead to internships and occupation opportunities in the future.
The funds raised will go towards transportation, hotel, and food. Past members who have attended this conference believe that this conference is eye-opening and will be beneficial to the new generation of female technologists in inspiring them to look onward and upwards to the future of technology.
We are a small team of women majoring and/or minoring in computer science and information technology hoping to create our own paths into a technologically advancing world. We are composed entirely of female students ranging from Freshmen to Juniors at Western New England University.
Our story is one that is just beginning. We have many ambitions and some of which include broadening the number of women in computing, encouraging more women to join the technological fields, and to gain a better understanding of computing and its potential.
Over the years the number of women in computing has decreased steadily while the trend of technology is increasing. One of our goals is to make a memorable mark on younger women interested in the field of computer science and information technology. We hope that through attending the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference, it will inspire women to go into technological fields, to be a part of a global community, and to continue to build for the future.
Although we are a small team, we have large dreams and high hopes for this project and we hope that with your help we will be able to reach far with our team of young women!
Every donation will go directly covering the expenses of the trip for the students dedicating their time and passion to this conference. Every gift is immensely appreciated and will help our team move a step closer to attending this conference.
