Go Daddy Grace Hopper Sponsorship

GoDaddy is excited to sponsor students to attend the Grace Hopper Conference in 2016, and we are excited to include Howard University in our selection process! In the past two years, we have sponsored over 150 students and have hired 23 interns and new grads through our attendance at Grace Hopper. We are proud to be one of 13 companies that the Anita Borg Institute identified in its annual list of Top Companies for Women Technologists.

GoDaddy is committed to increasing the number of women in technology and sponsoring students to attend Grace Hopper is one of our initiatives. In 2015, we increased the number of our women interns and new college graduate hires in engineering from 14 percent to 39 percent in both categories. And for 2016, we’re trending to hit 50% women new college graduate hires in engineering. In addition, we were recently added to the Fortune 100 Best Companies To Work For and we have several women in technology leadership roles including our CTO, Elissa Murphy

We look forward to providing an experience that will motivate and encourage your interest in a computer science career.
