Global nonprofit AnitaB.org
announces the Call

New York City which will take place in New York, November 4, 2019.
Hopperx1 New York City is modeled after the AnitaB.org Grace
Hopper Celebration. The event brings together women technologists –
along with leading companies from industry, academia, and research – to
build relationships, learn, and advance their careers.
“Hopper events give us an opportunity to strengthen our collective,
diverse voices, and showcase women innovators in various parts of the
world,” said Ruchita Nigam, Engineering Manager, FaceBook, and New York
Community Leader Volunteer, AnitaB.org. “We are thrilled to bring
Hopperx1 back to New York and to be bringing the women of this city
together to provide them with the tools and support they need to grow,
learn, and develop across the entire academic and technical career path.”
There are three conference tracks for Hopperx1 New York City covering a
wide range of fields for every technical woman, including:
Career/Diversity & Inclusion – Provides a platform
for speakers to discuss their experiences and strategies that have
helped advance their careers and diversity and inclusion programs.

innovations and research, industry trends, prevalent challenges,
untapped opportunities, and new skills needed to advance careers in
areas such as AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain, and Data Science.
Startup/Entrepreneurship – Provides a forum for learning and
discussion on a variety of topics to help attendees understand what it
takes to be a successful entrepreneur.
