CS Table: Debrief on Grace Hopper Celebration

This Friday at CS Table, we will debrief on the 2014 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing. We will be joined by alumna guest Donna House Lohmeier '96, Senior Project Manager at Qualcomm Life.

You may have seen media coverage of Satya Nadella's advice that women not ask for raises, which he quickly retracted. This brief NYT opinion piece explains why he was wrong: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/11/upshot/why-microsofts-nadella-is-wrong-about-women-and-raises.html

At the conference, there was far more discussion of the Male Allies panel. Here's a first-person report, which is admittedly biased: http://readwrite.com/2014/10/09/technology-sexism-male-allies-grace-hopper-celebration

Please join us on Friday to discuss these events and our experiences at the conference.

All students are welcome to attend the discussion; you need not have attended GHC and you need not self-identify as a woman in computing.
