The excitement around the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (#GHC16) conference is growing and growing! That’s because only a few days from now, some really awesome women in tech will descend upon Houston, TX and begin three days of networking, learning, interviewing and having fun!

With #GHC16 just around the corner, the @Cisco_Wise (Women in Science and Engineering) Twitter handle and the ‘WeAreCisco’ Snapchat channel partnered on the very first ever #CiscoChat / Snapchat crossover!

Not only was there great conversation happening on the Twitter chat, where Christine Bastian, VP of HR was answering questions about the great advantages, challenges and advice for being a successful woman in technology. In addition to answering the questions in 140 characters during the #CiscoChat, she also gave a little more detail on the topic with help from one of the WeAreCisco Snapchat super employee ambassadors, Rehana Rehman, Business Operations Manager.

Why a Snapchat crossover? That’s because next week at #GHC16, the WeAreCisco Snapchat channel will be Snapping away with attendees and encouraging them to share about this same topic – what makes them a strong woman in tech – where they can win an opportunity to get a networking opportunity with one of Cisco’s great women in technology leaders, Liz Centoni, SVP/GM of Cisco’s Computing Systems Product Group.
