Systers Celebrates 2015 #womensday!

With Systers from more than 54 countries, we celebrate International Women’s day #womensday Everyday!

International Women’s Day begins March 8, 2015  and the entire week through Saturday, March 14, 2015 we continue to promote women in computing, technology and STEM fields through various initiatives.

  • Our editorial team of our Best of Systers Blog will post articles about women in tech events by our community members.
  • Our Systers Pass It On Awards program is accepting applications to help support women seeking their place in technical fields.  Systers have a moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the award.
  • Read stories from Anita’s Quilt.  These women are inspiring and faced many challenges during their career paths.
  • Open source projects is great for women to level up their technical/coding skills, contribute to great software projects and collaborate with global teams. We mentor women in our open source projects and Systers was accepted into Google Summer of Code program as a mentoring organization.


We’re hosting several Twitter chats next week to complement our initiatives. Please visit Systers IWD homepage for more details about our scheduled events.
