Let's change the direction of tech...Together!

In 1995, tech visionary Anita Borg issued a challenge: to create a technical workforce made up of 50 percent women by the year 2020. When Anita issued this challenge, 37% of computer scientists in the U.S. were female. But today, we're looking at a very different workforce — one that is struggling to recover from a steep drop in gender diversity over the past 20 years.
