As more and more people from underrepresented groups lift their voices and launch their careers in tech fields, it is more important than ever that we share their stories widely. We all need visible role models who can challenge, inspire, and motivate us. With this in mind, we’re starting the #bewhoyoucansee series. Every week, we'll profile someone from an underrepresented group working in tech to learn how they got started, what they're passionate about, and what advice they have for other people pursuing a technical career. If you're a role model, or want to share who and what inspires you, follow along with us on Facebook and Instagram by tagging your posts #bewhoyoucansee. Read more...

Announcing the Grace Hopper Scholarship

Posted about 7 years ago
blog post · Culture · Compute · Women in Tech · Recruiting · Academics

Last year I had the opportunity to participate on the 2009 Grace Hopper Technical Executive Forum in a discussion around the challenges organizations face with the recruitment, retention, and advancement of technical women and the solutions to these challenges. It was an educational and motivational experience, and I've subsequently met many people who were hugely impacted by attending a Grace Hopper conference. Today, I'm thrilled to announce the Facebook Grace Hopper Scholarship. The scholarship will award 5 female university students excelling in Computer Science to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in Atlanta, Georgia on September 28 - October 2, 2010. The conference's theme this year is 'Collaborating Across Boundaries' and offers incredible opportunities for mentoring, networking, technical and career development. To apply for the scholarship, please visit the Facebook Grace Hopper Scholarship application page. Read more...
