2009 Systers Pass It On Award Winner

Project Title:

Sisters on IT (60IT)

Project Description:

Trang of Hanoi, Vietnam, will use the funding to launch the official Sisters on IT (60IT) website,http://www.60IT.org. The award will pay for the domain and hosting fees for two years. The Sisters on IT (60IT) project started in March 2009 and its goal is to connect and encourage Vietnamese women who study, work in, or have interest in information technology (IT), computer science (CS), and other related fields. Since it is difficult in Vietnam to find research information about women in IT and many are not able to understand English papers and reports, the project will translate and post these papers and reports for women to use. In addition, the website will have provide information about 60IT’s mission and members, online and offline activities for members, and a forum where members can discuss any topics which relate to women in IT and CS.
