UW CSE at the 13th Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing


UW CSE attendees at the 13th Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is a series of conferences, dating back to 1994, designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. This year’s conference – the 13th – was held in Minneapolis, MN, with an estimated 4,000 attendees.

UW’s strong commitment to diversity is reflected in our perennial position among the best-represented schools at the Hopper conference, regardless of location. This year was no exception. UW participants were a mix of graduate students, undergraduate students, faculty, and staff members – the vast majority from CSE, but also with participation from EE and HCDE. HCDE professor (and CSE adjunct professor) Cecelia Aragon participated in a panel discussion about building leadership skills. CSE presenters include graduate students Shiri Azenkot and Kyle Rector, undergraduate alum Kristine Delossantos (now at WhitePages), and graduate student Nicki Dell, who led a project for Saturday’s Open Source Day. In the “friends and family” department, Fiona Condon – daughter of UW CSE Ph.D. alum (and UBC department head) Anne Condon and UW CSE technical staff member (and CSE Masters alum) Scott Rose – chaired a panel; Fiona is a Brown alum now crafting code at Etsy.
