Three Georgia College students attend Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

Three Georgia College students, senior Anna Lidzba, graduate student Heather Reynolds and senior Jordan Mixon, recently attended the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women in Computing— the world's largest gathering of women technologists. Dr. Tanya Goette, chair of the Department of Information Systems and Computer Science, also attended.

Lidzba and Reynolds were awarded a scholarship from the IT Advisory Board to cover the travel costs associated with this event. Mixon’s attendance was paid for by her mentor, Anne Mecklenburg, who is a senior program manager for Microsoft.

“It was incredibly inspirational to hear from company employees ranging from top international executives all the way to recent graduates, who were in our shoes a year ago,” said Lidzba. “Going to the Grace Hopper Conference gave me a leg up in job applications and allowed me to gain genuine and experience-rich career advice. This school provides incredible opportunities.”

More than 300 companies were present at the expo with representatives eager to speak with students.

“All three girls were interviewed by companies while they were there,” said Goette. “Jordan has a video interview with Cisco this week. Anna is interviewing with AT&T. Heather has accepted a professional internship with Disney for this spring. She will be deploying technology within the parks in Orlando. Heather is also interviewing with Microsoft.”

Produced by the Anita Borg Institute and presented in partnership with Association of Computing Machinery, more than 15,000 attended the conference from 83 different countries.
