Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On Awards for Women in Technology 2018

Deadline: March 28, 2018

Nominations are open for the Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On Awards for Women in Technology 2018. The Anita Borg Systers Pass It On Awards honors Anita Borg’s desire to create a network of  women technologists helping each other. The cash award helps fund women in computing or projects that inspire and support girls and women to enter computing.

The program is called “Pass-It-On” because it comes with the moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the award. These awards are funded by generous donations from Systers, their online community founded by Anita Borg in 1987, and other members of the community.

At AnitaB.org, they envision a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it. They connect, inspire, and guide women in computing, and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.
