Join us in creating a conference that connects, inspires and guides women in computing and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.

Step 1: Find out more about GHC 2016. Check out our impact report.

Step 2: Decide which sponsorship level and benefits best fit your company or organization’s needs. Sponsorships are closed, but you can check out the benefits associated with each type by clicking on the links below.

Step 3: Purchase your sponsorship or patronship. Sponsorships are closed.

  • Partners: You should have received an email with a password to gain access to GHC Sponsorship opportunities that are open to partners. Please enter your password when prompted. You do not need a registration code at this time. If you did not receive a password for sponsorship, please email

Step 4: Log into the portal. You will need your reference number from your confirmation email.

  • You can modify your registration (change contact information, buying more booths or registrations, etch.).
  • You can invite attendees to use your pre-paid registrations. You can also check the status of your registrations and make substitutions.
  • Check on your RSVP registrations such as the Technical Executive Forum, Senior Women’s Program and VIP receptions.
