Woman Coding on Computer

At McGraw-Hill, we’re dedicated to increasing diversity and the role of women in the workplace. One way we’re accomplish this is by sponsoring events such the Grace Hopper Celebration, the world’s largest technical conference for women in computing. We believe that increasing the number of women in computing and coding careers can help drive innovation to unlock the full potential of learners worldwide.

The Anita Borg Institute believes women are vital to making the necessary technologies of our world. In 1994 Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney created the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing to focus people’s attention on women pursuing careers in computing. Today, thousands of women technologists and computing specialists come together at this event to provide insight on professional development in technology and computing.
