Thousands of people who convened at the 2019 Grace Hopper Celebration India heard a powerful message: women have the power to transform technology…and the world.
More than 6,000 women and men from India and nine other countries, including the United States, gathered for the 10th anniversary of the Grace Hopper Celebration India (GHCI) in Bangalore. As BNY Mellon pursues its own digital transformation, our delegation of 47 employees also converged on Bangalore to participate in the largest technical conference for women in Asia.
BNY Mellon regularly sponsors the GHCI conference, and 2019 was our biggest event ever. As a platinum sponsor, BNY Mellon was able to spotlight our organization as a top career destination for women technologists and engage with thousands of attendees. At our tech booth, Team BNY Mellon involved conference participants in demonstrations of emotion detection by Pershing’s Advanced Technology Lab and gave presentations on Development Operations, big data and machine learning. BNY Mellon women took the stage during five sessions, showcasing their knowledge and expertise across various topics.
“The event was a true celebration of BNY Mellon women in technology—our stories, our culture and our people who are shaping the future.”Bhargavi Nuvvula, BNY Mellon Corporate Technology CIO
