The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is the world's largest gathering of women technologists. It is produced by the Anita Borg Institute and presented in partnership with Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

Co-founded by Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney in 1994 and inspired by the legacy of U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, Anita Borg Institute’s Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women In Computing Conference is designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront.

Every year, GHC brings together the community of women technologists, the best minds in computing and increased visibility for the contributions of women to computing.

The conference results in collaborative proposals, networking and mentoring for our attendees. Conference presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industry, academia and government. The conference also offers professional development through a variety of activities.
