Anita Borg Institute helped me get the word out about my iPhone app, leading to some great reviews and positive feedback from the community. Specifically, they are very active on Twitter and are instrumental in informing their community about key events, deadlines, and issues.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They RT'ed my tweets! And their "I am a technical woman" video was great to show my daughter a quick snapshot of a few hundred role models. Also I've been to a couple of great events they sponsored and supported at the Computer History Museum.

The ABI is a fantastic organization. My experience with them, until lately, has been through the Grace Hopper Conference which is run annually and helps celebrate women in computing. I think that the most important thing about this organization is that it proves that women have a way of working, and creating change in the world that is honest, open, and value laden. Each year they manage to bring together over a thousand people, and they do it in a very personal way. The twitter feed is great, because it creates a sense of community is a desperate community of women and shares our accomplishments and echos our concerns. The Systers listserve, which I help with to organize and collect the posted links, is also invaluable. The initiatives that the ABI takes on are always done with care, and the outcomes are felt broadly through the entire community of CS professionals.

The Great!

my local community in Virginia Tech. We have had an increase in participation within our women in computing club, along with help in our retention efforts within computing.
