Wrapping up the Hopper Conference

More than 30 Sun women attended and worked at the Hopper conference in San Diego last week. Working at Sun’s recruiting table and at the Treasure Hunt table gave us opportunities not only to talk with potential new Sun staff but also to get to know each other better. I think I have seen two dozen enthusiastic emails just this morning from the Sun Engineers, executives, and managers who attended the Hopper conference and came home with a buzz.

Several names got inadvertently left off of the presenters’ list on Sun’s press release “Sun Microsystems’ Executives Among Leading Presenters at 2006 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing”. The whole list of Sun presenters was:

  • Katy Dickinson (Director, Business Process Architecture, CTO and Sun Labs) and Carol Gorski (Director, CTO and Sun Labs HR) 4 October: talk on mentoring at the TechLeaders Workshop on “5 Years of Mentoring by the Numbers”
  • Ingrid Van Den Hoogen (Sun Sr. Vice President, Brand, Global Communications and Integrated Marketing), and Emily Suter Ransford (Sun Business Development Manager, Marketing) 4 October: “It Takes a Village (and Vision): The Role of Communities and Interoperability in Next Generation Networks” poster session
  • Dr. Radia Perlman (Distinguished Engineer, Sun Labs) 5 October: “What’s a PKI, why would I want one, and how should it be designed?” invited speech 6 October: introducing keynote speech by Dr. Sally Ride
  • Katy Dickinson (Director, Business Process Architecture, CTO and Sun Labs) 5 October: “Mentoring by the Numbers” panel by Katy Dickinson, with Dr. Carol Muller (Founder, MentorNet), and Dr. Mary Jean Harrold (Georgia Tech)
