It was my distinct pleasure to speak at the recent Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Minneapolis, MN, Oct 2 – 5, 2013.  What a jolt of positive energy!  The conference was attended by a diverse group of more than 4,000 women who defy the notion that to be a computer professional means being “a geeky guy with no life” and sub-par communication skills.

The conference, presented by the Anita Borg Institute and the Association for Computer Machinery sold out this year!  Connect with the Facebook Page for the event to get info as soon as possible about the next event.  Or follow the Anita Borg Institute on Twitter — @AnitasQuilt.

Better yet, explore joining a LeanIn.org circle, run on Mightybell – a technology platform that makes it easy for you to join existing ABI Circles or start your own. As a bonus, Mightybell is run by Gina Bianchini, the co-founder of LeanIn.Org and a successful (female) tech entrepreneur!
