This week the DAM Links will have a theme, because the Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) of Women in Computing is wrapping up today Houston, Texas. The three day event is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. As a result, there have been several articles about women in tech and innovation. Since we are all for women in technology, we’re covering it! You can find recaps and conference information on the GHC Community Blog.

The Anita Borg Institute (ABI) is the non-profit behind the Grace Hopper Celebration. Yesterday ABI announced the launch of ABI.Local as a way to help female technologists create local communities. – Anita Borg Institute

Technically this article posted last week, but it makes the DAM Links anyway. Vala Afshar sat down with CIO Diane Doersch to discuss how to get more women in tech. The result are her thoughts on sharing the breadth of IT work and taking intentional action to get young women interested in technology careers. – Huffington Post

Along similar lines, MATRIXX Software founder Jennifer Kyriakakis recommends that we market tech careers to women, saying “I would market a career in tech the way you market a career in fashion or teaching. Be involved in the thing you love. Focus on the end product, rather than the nuts and bolts technology perspective of it.  Tech is not just about building software, it’s about creating meaningful customer experiences…” – Computer Weekly

That wraps our coverage of women in tech. Now for your regularly scheduled programming…

Have a tech startup? Take it to Africa. Digital art and innovation are on fire and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. Watch that continent for the next big thing. – MarkLives
