Oracle Women Enjoy Women of Vision 2010

I can't believe this is already coming up again so soon! The Anita Borg Institute is yet  again hosting the Women of Vision awards in Santa Clara, CA in May.

Last year, Legacy Sun employees were able to meet up with Classic Oracle employees and we all got to learn a lot about each other and our respective organizations.  All of us were so inspired by the winners of the Women of Vision and came back to work energized and invigorated.

13 Sun Presentations at Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

The Hopper conference announced its acceptances yesterday. I just finished collecting review results from Sun's submitters. Sun staff submitted or were part of groups which submitted 19 proposals to Hopper 2009 and 13 were accepted (69%) - Sun's best acceptance rate ever! This includes Susan Landau's invited technical talk. The 2009 Sun presenters are from a very broad range of Engineering disciplines: Microelectronics, Software, Storage, Sun Labs, and the Systems group.

GHC 2009 will be held:

      Tucson, Arizona
      September 30 - October 3, 2009

Sun will be a Platinum Corporate Sponsor for the Hopper conference again this year.
