Resources about Awards, GHC2010

Members of the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference panel called “Advancing Your Career Through Awards” met by phone on Friday to plan what we will do next week at GHC2010.  The panel includes:

Katy Dickinson (Huawei Technologies), Panel Chair

Frances E. Allen (IBM)

Marcy Alstott (Hewlett-Packard)

Lucinda M Sanders (NCWIT – National Center for Women & Information Technology)

Robert Walker (Kent State University)

Manuela M. Veloso (Carnegie Mellon University)

One of our decisions in the meeting was to create a business card handout including key information for those interested in technical awards for women. I ordered the cards from OvernightPrints, which will deliver them to me at the Hopper Conference hotel (if all goes well).  The resources listed are:

Award-Winning Career Timelines In Computer Science and Engineering (the new web pages developed by my committee, just published by ABI)

The Raise Project (Recognition of the Achievements of Women In Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine – lists of awards)

The back says “Nominate a Great Technical Woman“. Here is what the cards will look like:
