GT Women in Computing: Get their own stories in their own words—right here

Women have been at the center of Georgia Tech's computing curriculum literally since the beginning—the Institute's first information science degree (an M.S.) was awarded to Joanne Butterworth in 1966. Today the College of Computing is just as committed to ensuring that women are given every incentive and opportunity to learn, grow and prosper through the world of computation. 

One of our oldest and most successful student groups is Women@CC, and every year the College sends a strong contingent of undergraduate, graduate student, staff and faculty women to the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, enabling them to build networks of their peers and share the Georgia Tech story with future students.

Below are the stories of just a few of the women in computing who call Georgia Tech home. Read and be inspired—then connect with us through social media. Who knows? In a year or two, you could be a Woman@CC, leading the way for the next generation.
