WHAT IS she++?

she++ is a one-day conference at Stanford University that seeks to define the barriers separating women from technical fields, brainstorm catalysts that negate those barriers, and learn from the stories of industry successes. We want to inspire women to consider technological fields and to showcase the available opportunities. she++ will leverage the perspectives of all attendees--students and technologists alike--in blogs and polls to be updated throughout the day.

Co-Chairs Ellora Israni and Ayna Agarwal are women in technology and sophomores at Stanford University, majoring in Computer Science and Symbolic Systems (Human Computer Interaction), respectively. We are passionate about exposing women to the technical opportunities available to them. We are both excited to learn from all attendees at she++.

Please feel free to contact us at or with any questions. Thank you for your support of women in technology!
