GHC2009 - Getting Ready

Preparations for the Grace Hopper Celebration are kicking into high gear at the Anita Borg Institute. I thought I would blog a little on what is going on:
  • Program - Call for Submissions - Deadline is March 16th and we will not be extending the date so if you have an idea and would like to be part of the GHC2009 program, now is your opportunity.
  • Awards - Call for Nominations - Nominate someone (or yourself) for an Anita Borg Award for Leadership or Social Impact, the Denice Denton Emerging Leader Award or a Change Agent Award. The deadline is April 30, 2009.
  • Scholarships - 2 options here: Google Anita Borg Scholarships (already started) and the Grace Hopper Scholarship Program will begin March 19th.
  • Get involved in our Community. Having a great network is one of the best ways to improve you career prospects and its more fun too!

Email me! What do you want to see at Hopper this year? What are your goals while you are in Tucson? How can I help? deannak *at* anitaborg *dot* org.
