The three-day event is returning to Houston and is set to have more
than 20,000 participants.

PROS®
(NYSE:PRO), a provider of AI-powered solutions that optimize selling in
the digital economy, today announced its participation in the Grace
Hopper Conference for Women in Computing. Scheduled for Sept. 26-28 in
Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center, the conference gathers
female technologists to discuss career opportunities, industry
trailblazers, and professional development.

"PROS has always worked to be a place where women in technology can
thrive, follow their passions, and make an impact worldwide," said PROS
President and CEO Andres
Reiner
. "This is the largest group of speakers we've had from PROS
represented at Grace Hopper, including a number from BLAZE, the PROS
women's network, and we could not be prouder to support the conference's
mission."

"Conference attendees can meet with PROS' speakers and BLAZE members at
a reception hosted by PROS to learn more about the company, our culture
and their experiences working for Houston's largest publicly traded
technology company," stated Reiner.

Five PROS representatives are set to deliver presentations or moderate
panels at the conference:

  • Jennifer Plummer, Manager, Product Development, will moderate a panel
    titled, "Architect: A Great Career or the Greatest Career?" Architects
    can influence application development and how software engineers
    transition into technical leaders. Women architects will be introduced
    in this panel and share their experiences with the audience.
  • Eunice Yang, User Experience Researcher, Kieu Tran, User Experience
    Designer, and Daniel Rutledge, Senior Software Engineer, will join
    forces to speak at, "So Many Features, So Little Time." In this
    workshop, the trio will help participants understand project
    management and what it is like to be part of a software product team.
    Attendees will learn about balancing resources, juggling customer
    demands, delivering products in a timely manner, and creating
    contingency plans for overcoming unexpected obstacles.
  • Deepthi Venkatachalam, Quality Engineer Lead, will deliver a Mentoring
    Circle session titled, "Eat. Sleep. Test. Repeat: Software Testing as
    an Enticing Career Option." The session will take a deeper dive into a
    question Computer Science graduates often face: Do you prefer a
    testing role or a development role? Venkatachalam will discuss how to
    best answer that question from the perspective of a Test Engineer.

In conjunction with the event, BLAZE and Pride@PROS, PROS LGBTQIA+
employee resource group, will jointly host a networking reception on
Thursday, Sept. 27, from 4:30 – 6:30 P.M. at MKT Bar in downtown
