On May 9 - 10, 2014, the Pacific Northwest Celebration of Women in Computing Conference will bring together over 100 women in Computer Science from the Pacific Northwest region onto UBC's Point Grey campus for two days of professional development, networking and inspirational activities. Students will get a chance to hear from, interact with and be mentored by industry professionals, researchers and faculty members.
The theme this year is passion and purpose. Passion draws from within; rooted in our talents, interests and identities, while purpose connects us outwards, enabling us to support others, build community, and make a positive difference in our world. Our education as computer scientists, and our diverse experiences, put us in an enviable position to bring passion and purpose to our work. This conference will bring together women leaders and future leaders in computing from the Pacific Northwest for inspiration, support and practical guidance in pursuing meaningful and satisfying careers.
