About the Grace Hopper Celebation EMEA
The Virtual Grace Hopper Celebration (vGHC) EMEA is more than a Celebration. It mobilizes the emergent Women’s Technology Movement to accelerate common cause, learning and capacity. As a result, they will have a stronger regional framework to promote equity, especially representation, pay, retention, funding and leadership toward building a world of inclusive technology.
With their goal to uplift and celebrate the diversity and power of all women technology leaders worldwide, they are thrilled to bring the legacy of GHC to the entire EMEA region. This includes women technologists most underrepresented in the tech field. Together, they look to provide technical training and career development opportunities to these women and their allies, as well as develop novel solutions for ethical and social responsibility issues in technology.
This Celebration will create a new network of advocates and allies with whom they can work year-round to strengthen the capacity of the entire corporate, educational and governmental technology ecosystem necessary for the success of EMEA women technologists.
