Appirio will be attending the Grace Hopper Celebration for the third year in a row next week. As a proud sponsor of GHC, we look forward to another amazing opportunity to learn from and support women in technology. Whether you are a freshman in college looking for an internship, a senior in college looking for your first full-time role, or an experienced professional, we look forward to connecting and meeting you there!
Women from all over the country join together at Grace Hopper to connect on computer science research, professional development, career interests, and most of all how women can impact the technology industry. Appirio takes great pride in advocating for women in technology as evident by our 19 (and counting!) Lean In circles which provide women (and men) across the globe an opportunity to learn & connect. In fact, seven Appirian women will be representing our team this year! In the past six months, over 100 women globally have been promoted, leading the way for women in technology to take on leadership roles. We also have our global headquarters in Indianapolis, which was recently voted one of the “5 Best cities for women in tech.”
We are also excited to announce, for the first time, that we will be sending delegates to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration in India this November.
