The content of the sessions was great and very diverse. There were plenty to technical talks, career advise and discussion panels. For me the highlight of the conference was a panel titled Should I Stay or Should I Go?, featuring some amazing women leaders. This was a discussion about identifying when it’s time to make a change.
As part of the Microsoft team I also spent time at the recruiting booth. This is something I really enjoy doing and it was particularly great at GHC. It was fun to share experiences, give encouragement and advice and to represent Microsoft Research. I was amazed by the quality of the students that stopped by the booth.
Being from Mexico I’m technically a minority in the US computer software industry. But to be honest, I’ve never really felt this significantly, perhaps because the industry (and Seattle) is very ethnically diverse. But GHC was a great glimpse of what it feels like to be in the minority, gender wise.
We have many GHC sessions aimed at students and faculty from all types of training institutions, and also provide scholarships for them to attend.
