GHC is designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront and has become the biggest annual career fair for women in technology. Our students attended program sessions and took advantage of the networking opportunities, learning of career paths in academia, research, and industry from conversations with the many Duke alumni who stopped by the department\'s booth. Several students were offered jobs or internships on the spot!

Professor Susan Rodger summed up the significance of this year\'s event, saying, \"GHC was once again a great opportunity for female students...a chance for them to meet and network with a large number of successful women in computer science.\"
