My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology, Palo Alto, CA, USA
Not too many people know or remember that my career in California started thank to ABI. In 2004, I got my current position after reading the job posting in its Systers community. Since then I have found my way to work with them. Why? ABI helped me to discover my passion for diversity and equality of technical women in computer related fields. I have personally profited from the excellent work ABI does with its Industry partners and I have attended the Grace Hopper Celebrations since 2004. Aside from the benefits in my professional career, ABI has been fundamental for the success of Latinas in Computing (LIC), a grass-root community born at the 2006 Grace Hopper Celebration. As a chair of LiC and a female engineer working in a high tech company, I can testify that ABI has positively impacted the professional lives of many of us.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
collaborating with them. They are such as blast!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide more scholarships for their wonderful events including Grace Hopper Celebrations.
Ways to make it better...
I would have met ABI before 2004
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
More resources to outreach even more
One thing I'd also say is that...
they have been my mentors. Don't tell them though.
