#GHC18 Registration Transfers and Resales

#GHC18 Registration Transfers and Resales

If you realize that you cannot attend the Grace Hopper Celebration, we strongly encourage you to transfer your registration to another member of the GHC community. To find someone to take your place, search your personal and professional networks, the Systers list, Community.AnitaB.org discussion forums, and the #GHC18 hashtag on your favorite social media sites. In the spirit of community, we strongly encourage you to re-sell your registration for no more than the price you paid. We're all in this together!

To those of you who were unable to secure a GHC 18 registration, we understand your disappointment. We encourage you to reach out to search your personal and professional networks, the Systers list, and Community.AnitaB.org discussion forums, or check the #GHC18 hashtag on social media.

Be wary of anyone asking for more than the original registration cost, and/or of listings on CraigsList, eBay, or other sites that are not visible to the larger GHC community. Also, remember that Student, Academic, and Transition registrations have special requirements; you will be asked to validate your qualifications at badge pickup.

In order to complete the transfer, the original registration purchaser can contact GHC@AnitaB.org with the full name and email address of the replacement attendee. Financial transactions related to registration transfers are the sole responsibility of the original purchaser and substitute attendee; we cannot assist with this part of the process.

Roe v. Wade Has Been Overturned. You Have Every Right to Be Upset. Here’s how to take action

We at AnitaB.org, are disheartened and dismayed by the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling that enabled the right of an abortion to people around the nation. AnitaB.org brings together allies and champions across every sector to advance intersectional gender equity in technology. The technologists we support are also people impacted by targeted oppressive and unjust laws including laws that restrict reproductive rights. Not only do we empower technologists through our year-long programming but, we also advocate for better systemic solutions for the workforce and for their humanity. 

In response to the Supreme Court ruling, we are joining to elevate the calls to action of our social justice colleagues and community partners. 

If you feel called to do something today or in the next coming days, here are some action steps:  

  • Support and donate to Repro Legal Defense Fund, which is a national organization that covers bail and funds strong defense for people who are investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for abortion. Because no one should be behind bars for ending their pregnancy or helping someone else do so.
  • Support and donate to Plan C, an educational resource for learning about how people in the US access abortion pills.
  • Support and donate to your local Planned Parenthood, independent abortion clinics, and abortion funds.
  • Go to the streets and join a protest near you. Most protests are happening today at 5 PM at the federal courthouses or state capitols.

AnitaB.org is also launching a political advocacy series, Power to the People, with our first event on July 20th. The first event of this series, Power to People: Abortion Rights and Digital Privacy, will elevate the voices of abortion advocates and the risks emerging with digital rights and privacy. This event will empower you to take additional action regarding abortion rights and data privacy. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming event.
