Calling all GHC 17 attendees! The Anita Borg Institute would like to personally invite you to attend our Community Socials.
Our Community groups keep women connected and inspired all year round. Systers connects over 6,000 members from at least 60 different countries, making it the world’s largest email community of women in technical roles in computing. This online forum provides women a private space to seek advice from their peers, and discuss the challenges they share as women technologists. We also have our Systers affinity groups, where members of Systers can identify themselves culturally to share and offer support to one another.
There’s also our newest group: ABI.Local, a network of locally organized communities that bring women technologists together in cities around the world. ABI.Local not only connects women online but also offers in-person events throughout the year. These events allow women to network, gain knowledge and resources about their field, and celebrate women in tech.
To celebrate our many Community groups, we will be hosting Community Socials during all three days of GHC 17. By attending these socials, you will be able to network with other women in tech and learn more about our Community. You can see the dates and times of our socials below.
