Qualtrics is excited to attend Grace Hopper!
Qualtrics is so excited to attend our FIRST Grace Hopper Celebration #GHC18
At Qualtrics we believe in diversity and we know that in order to be the best most innovative company we can be, we have to be diligently intentional on our actions to hire diverse talent!
With a diverse workforce, innovation increases by 83% and decisions are made 60% faster. Qualtrics thrives on speed and innovation. We are the experience management company. As our technology scales from people and companies to communities and governments, we will begin to close gaps in ways we never dreamed possible.
Not only will our technology power the world’s greatest companies, but by understanding human emotions, beliefs, sentiments, and values, we will close some of the world’s biggest gaps: political misunderstandings, human rights issues, health care disparities, gender equality, education, and income.
Because many of the world’s most pressing problems occur from a lack of understanding – and that’s a problem we can solve.
To solve these problems, we need diverse talent. For that reason, it is in line with our passion to be involved with an organization like AnitaB.org and an honor to be a part of The Grace Hopper Celebration this fall!
The Grace Hopper Celebration is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. It is produced by AnitaB.org and presented in partnership with ACM. GHC 18 will be Sep. 26–28 in Houston, TX. Be sure to come and visit our booth and find your fit at Qualtrics!
About The Grace Hopper Celebration
The world’s largest gathering of women technologists, the 2018 Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC 18), will be held September 26–28 in Houston, Texas. This year’s gathering will welcome more than 20,000 attendees. In addition to the presentation of this year’s Abie Awards, the celebration will feature keynote speeches from leading technical women, career development sessions, the inaugural PitcHER™ contest for entrepreneurs, poster sessions, a hackathon, and the industry’s largest technical career fair for women.
At AnitaB.org, we envision a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it. We connect, inspire, and guide women in computing, and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.
Our social enterprise supports women in technical fields, as well as the organizations that employ them and the academic institutions training the next generation. We serve a global audience of women technologists and organizations committed to building cultures where women can thrive. A full roster of programs helps women grow, learn, and develop their highest potential.
AnitaB.org also produces annual Grace Hopper Celebrations in the U.S. and India, which attract tens of thousands of people from around the world. We have built alliances with hundreds of academic institutions and numerous Fortune 500 companies and technology giants.
In 1997, computer scientist Anita Borg founded the Institute for Women and Technology. After her death in 2003, it was renamed the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology. At Grace Hopper Celebration 2017, we welcomed Brenda Darden Wilkerson — founder of the original Computer Science for All movement — as our new President and CEO. We also adopted a new name, AnitaB.org, which honors our founder while offering a strong reminder of our nonprofit mission
