Celebrating Women in Computing at the Grace Hopper Conference in India

November 27, 2018

The Grace Hopper Celebration in India (GHCI) is an annual celebration of women in technology, an avenue to inspire one another and create opportunities to succeed. At GHCI 2018, Adobe India came together with the tech industry to celebrate our women technologists and their valuable contributions. Carrying forward our legacy of showcasing top innovations every year, our colleagues took the stage to showcase their projects and life at Adobe. Here’s what they had to say about the experience:

I attended GHCI for the first time this year as a speaker to present on Deep Learning related topics. I was amazed to see the grandeur of the event that celebrates ‘Women in Technology’. The event had eminent industry leaders participate as keynote speakers. There were insightful talks on emerging technologies, trends in Platform Engineering, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence. These talks were a perfect amalgamation of researches and trends that will shape the industry going ahead.

Motivational words from the speakers were truly inspiring. GHCI is a brilliant showcase of women empowerment and strength of the community! I really enjoyed my visit to the event.

Member of Technical Staff

I got the amazing opportunity to present my work at the Grace Hopper Conference in India and represent Adobe. It was great to hear the first-hand experiences of women in tech at the keynote sessions, and the insightful tech talks and presentations. I enjoyed attending the Tech Expo that showcased some of the latest technology products and solutions, and the career booth, which gave me a chance to meet people from other global technology companies.  

The most compelling experience for me was getting to showcase my research work there. It was encouraging seeing technology enthusiasts so interested to learn about my work. The cherry on top were the kind words and valuable feedback that I received from them, which inspired me to the core.

Having more than 5,000 technology enthusiasts together in one place and getting to interact and connect with them was an absolute pleasure and left me totally energized and full of enthusiasm. I thank Adobe for giving me this great opportunity!
