F5 supports women in technology at Hopperx1 conference

 March 25, 2019

F5 was a sponsor for AnitaB.org's Hopperx1 conference in Seattle, an event aimed at improving diversity and inclusion in the tech industry.

The Hopperx1 Conference event was organized by the Seattle chapter of AnitaB.org, the chapter is the largest in the United States and featured four focus areas encouraging women’s participation in technology: growing community; strengthening collective, diverse voices; fostering inclusion and inspiring action. This was the second Hopperx1 Conference in Seattle. The first Seattle conference was held back in 2017 and tickets sold out in just 36 hours.

F5's involvement in the event highlighted the company's support for women in tech, its engagement in its current employees by giving them an opportunity to leverage all the conference has to offer, and its commitment to recruiting top local-talent at the career fair.

The importance of building an inclusive culture

The Hopperx1 conference started with an amazing speech delivered by François Locoh-Donou, CEO of F5. He spoke about the "Power of Worth" and the importance of building an inclusive culture.

On the second day of the Grace Hopper Conference, F5 had a table right outside the main event hall where attendees could stop and chat with F5's recruiting team about exciting internship opportunities and full time positions at F5. A great way for women to find out more about working at F5!
