The Cisco team is gearing up for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Baltimore, Maryland! The conference, from Oct 3-5, is presented by the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology and the Association for Computing Machinery. Cisco is a Platinum Sponsor of the event.
58 Cisco employees will speak, mentor, participate and recruit at the conference. We are the third most represented company at GHC. Additionally, we have Cisco leaders exchanging ideas and sharing best practices at the Sr. Women’s Summit and the Technical Executive Forum.
If you’re looking to connect with us at GHC, look for us in our Cisco shirts. You can also find us in the sessions below or come by our booth. We have intern and full-time college hire opportunities. To get a taste for the new hire experience, you can check out VP/GM Jeff Reed giving an overview of Cisco and one of our interns, Brian Wong, sharing his experience through song. (Music and dancing start at 2:30)
If you can’t make the conference this year, you can watch the twitter hashtag #ghc12. I’ll be tweeting from @osgCisco and fellow Cisco attendee @jlramey will be tweeting as well.
