Anita Borg Institute’s Systers community is the largest virtual community of technical women in computing. Technical women from all around the world have become part of this unique community to engage in discussions in a private forum. Discussions are thought-provoking and supportive. Systers are there to help one another through work place challenges such as isolation, work-life balance and career growth
Systers Pass-It-On Awards
A founding core value of Systers is that Systers have the moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits that they have gained from the community. The Systers Pass-It-On (PIO) award is funded by Systers and awarded to women only. The awards are given in small amounts to help women establish their place in technology to help advance their studies, local project for young girls/women and/or transitions in their lives.
