Founded in January 2012, she++ was Stanford's first conference on women in technology. In April 2012, she++ hosted a lineup of inspirational women in tech--from companies such as Google, Facebook, Dropbox, and Pinterest, among others--and 250+ attendees on Stanford's campus. After positive feedback from attendees, mentors, and the press, she++ has expanded into a full-fledged community that inspires women to empower computer science. Through a number of initiatives, including a mentorship program and the upcoming she++ documentary, we aim to create community and momentum for female technologists.
she++: The Documentary (12 min: TV-14 DL) collects research and inspirational pieces of Silicon Valley's unsung heroes to galvanize us to explore our potential as “femgineers”
The documentary is scheduled for release April 1, 2013, and she++ invites those interested to host screenings. Information on hosting or attending a screening of she++: The Documentary is available at http://sheplusplus.stanford.edu/
