Created in 1994 and inspired by the legacy of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, the AnitaB.org flagship event Grace Hopper Celebration brings research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. The Celebration results in collaborative proposals, networking, and mentoring for attendees. GHC presenters are leaders in their respective fields who recognize the importance of diversity in tech. The Celebration also offers professional development through a variety of activities. Today, GHC is the world’s largest virtual and in-person gathering of women technologists, where women from around the world convene to learn, network, and celebrate their achievements. GHC 2023, The Way Forward, will be held virtually and in-person at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
