Winners will be honored by the community of women in technology at the annual Grace Hopper Celebration in front of approximately 6,000 conference attendees coming from more than 50 countries.
At the Anita Borg Institute, we celebrate and highlight the success of women technologists. Through their achievements and life stories, the ABIE Award winners demonstrate that each of us has the power to improve our world, individually and collectively.
Awards are public acknowledgment of success and excellence. They provide visibility to the honored individual as well as for their organization. Award winners serve as role models for women entering or progressing in the field. Nominate someone today!
