Amazon joins IBM and AnitaB.org in supporting female technologists from minority serving institutions in attending the 2019 Grace Hopper Celebration

In 2018, AnitaB.org made a commitment to intentionally expand our efforts to engage women of color. Now, Amazon joins IBM in funding women from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to attend our 2019 Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). We challenge other companies to match their donations to support MSI women technologists’ attendance at GHC and commit a representative to an on-site GHC conversation of strategies to further band together in support for women of color.
