GHC is the largest gathering of women technologists in the world and is expected to be attended by 20000 people this year and will return to Houston, TX from 26-28 Sep, 2018. Scholars will attend GHC with all expenses paid by generous industry sponsors and will be mentored by academic and industry leaders. GHC boasts a wide variety of technical panels and workshops and a huge career fair with top companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon if you’re looking for internships or jobs. Don’t forget to upload your resume on the GHC resume database when it opens early June, even if you don’t plan on attending the conference.
