2017 Grace Hopper Conference: Career Fair

2017 Grace Hopper Conference: Career Fair

Another great year of the Grace Hopper Conference, including the Career Fair.  GHC is a three-day conference designed to bring together women in computing to discuss research and career interests.

Top Companies for Women Technologists evaluated 63 companies this year, accounting for more than 574,000 technologists across a variety of fields. Within the participating companies, women held 22.95% of technical roles. This 1.2% increase from 2016 represents a relatively small change, but corresponds to thousands of new jobs for women technologists.

2017 Leadership Index

The Leadership Index lists the companies whose representation of women technologists is above the mean. The winner will then be announced on the main stage at the Grace Hopper Celebration  in Orlando October 4, 2017. Companies are listed alphabetically; this list is not a ranking.
