#MoreThanWords: How are you an ally?
At the Anita Borg Institute, we know that changing tech culture requires effort from men and women. Over the last 20 years, we have seen an increasing number of men come forward as allies. To engage male allies in deeper dialogue, the Grace Hopper Celebration is hosting its first male keynote speaker – Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, and its first Male Allies Panel and focus group. We want to hear from you, whether you are a woman in tech or a male ally, on what it means to be an ally – not just in word but in action. How do you act as an ally to underrepresented groups in tech? How would you want an ally to support you? Share your story by using the hashtag #MoreThanWords.
