Scholarship Review Committee – Extended, apply until 2/28/2018

Each year, we offer GHC Scholarships that enable students and faculty to attend the celebration. Each committee member reviews, on average, 15 applications online, and provides ratings and comments to help the committee co-chairs make decisions on applicants. Students are ineligible to be reviewers, but we encourage eligible students to apply for the scholarship. To volunteer for this committee, you must be able to commit to five non-consecutive hours between March 14, 2018 and March 29, 2018.

Poster Session Committee – Extended, apply until 2/28/2018

Submissions for the Poster Session are technical. Your co-chairs will assign you posters that best represent your area of expertise. You will review the poster submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by your co-chairs. You will review submissions during the month of March 2018.

Track Committee – Closed

Track committee volunteers directly impact the GHC program. During our formal Call for Participation (CFP) process, track committee volunteers review CFP submissions to decide who will speak at GHC. You will rate each submission based on criteria provided to you by your track’s co-chairs. When selecting which track you would like to review, please select the one that best represents your area of expertise. See a list of our 2018 tracks.

Open Source Day (OSD) Committee – Closed

For seven years, Open Source Day (OSD) has provided women of all skill levels and backgrounds with the opportunity to collaborate and make a change. You will work with tech leaders to develop humanitarian projects for this day long codeathon, that lets participants improve the world we live in with open source software (OSS).

Note: Our Open Source Day (OSD) Committee is separate from our Open Source Track Committee.
Applications for OSD mentors will open at a later date.


Mentorship Circles (formerly Student Opportunity Lab – SOL) Committee – Closed

This interactive mentoring session lets attendees seek personalized advice regarding their career or academic endeavors, in small groups.

You will review the mentors’ submissions and rate them based on criteria provided by our co-chairs. You will review submissions during the month of March 2018.
