SAN MATEO, Calif, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- AnitaB.org, the leading global nonprofit organization committed to promoting diversity, equality, inclusion, and belonging in the technology ecosystem, is thrilled to offer a dynamic slate of inspirational speakers, employment opportunities, skill-building sessions, and much more at the upcoming Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). Kicking off with the online GHC 23 Open Source Day on September 22, the world's largest gathering of women and non-binary technologists takes place September 26-29 virtually and in-person at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Guided by the theme "The Way Forward," the Celebration drives progress and promotes positive change to achieve the goal of creating a more equitable and inclusive future for the tech industry.

Past participants have noted the event's "overwhelmingly beautiful and inspiring" energy, sharing that they felt more confident in their technical skills and a greater sense of belonging in the community.
"I always get so excited in the lead-up to the Celebration — everyone on our team works so hard to put this event together for the attendees who travel from near and far, and we want them to leave knowing they have a place in technology as change-makers and innovators," said Brenda Darden Wilkerson, president and CEO of AnitaB.org.
