WE ARE … transforming the face of technology. #facesintech #GHC15
This Interactive Photo Installation is an engaging portrait gallery created by Google to celebrate women in computing. 
Attendees of GHC are invited to take pictures in one of three kiosks and customize their portrait through code developed by female artists and coders:@shantell_martin with @zachlieberman, @sougwen with @laserberg, and @gorociao with @sharbox. 
The finished portraits will be sent to a wall of digital portraits arranged gallery style. Portraits are shared with users via email or text, which can then be shared via social media channels using #facesintech. If you see you're face, please tag yourself!
Grace Hopper attendees bring diverse ideas, perspectives and experiences. A single image cannot capture women in computing, but a mosaic of images can capture the power of this community and further celebrate its diversity.

The Anita Borg Institute is partnering with the Lean In Foundation, Facebook and LinkedIn on a new global effort to create and expand Lean In Circles focused on Computer Science and Engineering on college campuses. Our objective is to greatly expand the presence and engagement of Lean In circles and chapters on campus.

Access to and engagement with inspirational role models and career guidance can be life changing. But GHC only happens once a year. What if you had access to a strong, structured network year round? This is the promise of the Lean In Circles.

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is a great opportunity to gain professional visibility as a subject matter expert, expand your network, learn about new and exciting technologies and inspire other women in computing. Submit a proposal for a workshop, technical talk, or panel for this year’s conference!

"Many of the programs and organizations mentioned above are in dire need of volunteers, and not just female volunteers. [..] Join a local chapter of an organization supporting girls and offer to help as an instructor, teaching assistant, or event coordinator."

"If you aren't keeping an eye on the details, things can quickly move in the wrong direction in an emerging company. Most of the decisions as you get started are a series of small decisions that together build the company and the strategy. If you aren't willing to be in there at every level, you won't be able to navigate successfully. "
