Cisco’s Women in Technology Amp Up for Grace Hopper

October 18, 2016 - 3 Comments


It’s about that time of year again! This week the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (#GHC16) will be gearing up in Houston, Texas – and the women in tech here at Cisco are excited!

What’s GHC all about? Well, for starters, it’s the largest technical conference for women in computing. 15,000 attendees will be celebrating women in tech over three days, and gaining a lot of career knowledge too!

Our Cisco WISE employee resource organization (Women in Science and Engineering) helped to kick off the celebration recently by taking to our WeAreCisco Snapchat account and shared why they chose Cisco, career advice of their own, and why we’re so crazy about GHC!

  1. Without Sophie the as we know it would be a little boring. I mean… credits to Sophie for real.

  2. And don’t forget to celebrate Sophie Wilson, without her we probably wouldn’t have computers that fit into our pockets.
