2019 Anita B.org GHC 19 Committee Volunteer Opportunities
Are you interested in volunteering at Grace Hopper Celebration? Take a look at the opportunities we offer all year long.
GHC volunteers contribute their time, skills, and expertise by serving on various committees in the months leading up to GHC and providing on-the-ground support during the three-day Celebration. Help us in our mission to grow the number of women in computer science roles and to make GHC a tremendous success.
1. Scholarship Review Committee: Each year, we offer GHC Scholarships that enable students and faculty to attend the celebration. Each committee member reviews, on average, 15 applications online, and provides ratings and comments to help the committee co-chairs make decisions on applicants. Students are ineligible to be reviewers, but we encourage eligible students to apply for the scholarship.
2. Poster Session Committee:Submissions for the Poster Session are technical. Your co-chairs will assign you posters that best represent your area of expertise. You will review the poster submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by your co-chairs.
3. Track Committee: Track committee volunteers directly impact the GHC program. During our formal Call for Participation (CFP) process, track committee volunteers review CFP submissions to decide who will speak at GHC. You will rate each submission based on criteria provided to you by your track’s co-chairs. When selecting which track you would like to review, please select the one that best represents your area of expertise
4. Open Source Day (OSD) Committee: Open Source Day (OSD) provides women of all skill levels and backgrounds with the opportunity to collaborate and make a change. You will work with tech leaders to develop humanitarian projects for this day long code-a-thon that lets participants improve the world we live in with open source software (OSS).
5. Mentoring Circles Committee: This interactive mentoring session lets attendees seek personalized advice regarding their career or academic endeavors, in small groups. The topics of the submissions will be related to career opportunities, job search, tools for success at work, or academic paths. You will review the mentors’ submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by our co-chairs.
