Today was the annual in-person meeting of the Advisory Board of the Anita Borg Institute. As usual, we met at the HP Labs building in Palo Alto, California, which hosts the ABI offices. Amazing technical leaders from all of the great Silicon Valley and US technology companies, plus some universities and government groups were there. We discussed plans for the future and presented some of our accomplishments for the year, including the publication of my committee’s Famous Women in Computer Science web resource. We took home posters for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, to be held 3-6 October 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Most of the Advisory Board members and ABI staff will get together again tomorrow night at the Women of Vision event in Santa Clara. Huawei is sending a group to this inspiring annual gathering – I am very much looking forward to it!
