The Anita Borg Institute for Women in Tech
The Anita Borg Institute (ABI) takes its name from the computer scientist that started a digital community for women in computing in 1987 called ‘Systers’; a pioneering move in its own right, creating an online community well before the concept was considered mainstream. She has been credited for breaking through the “silicone ceiling” after receiving her PhD and having a brilliant research career with notable commercial technology companies.
The institute today plays the role of empowering women in tech – ABI helps women grow their careers and make significant contributions to technical fields. Online programs such as the ABIE Awards, Women of Vision Awards Banquet, ABI Lean In Circles, as well as their work with organisations to demonstrate the value of diverse teams that include women, have all contributed to a greater global reach at getting more women involved in tech.
Their motto is loud a clear: “Women transform technology”. They aim to connect, inspire, and guide women in computing and organisations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative. “We believe technology innovation powers the global economy, and that women are crucial to building technology the world needs”.
