Grace Hopper Underrepresented Women in Computing (UWiC) Committee

The Underrepresented Women in Computing provides content for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference. The content focuses on issues related to women from the following historically underrepresented groups: African American, Hispanic, Native American, and People with Disabilities. The UWiC committee was formed to develop content for Hopper 2012. Since that time, the committee has organized panels focused on underrepresented women at each subsequent Hopper Conference. In addition, UWiC is involved with the Women of Color luncheon and the speed mentoring sessions.

GHC 2017 Activities:

  • Women of Color Luncheon
  • Speed Mentoring Session
  • Underrepresented Women in Computing Panels
