Systers Meetups: Making a Global Impact Through Local Community Involvement

On or around January 17, 2012 Systers celebrated Anita Borg’s birthday with first global meetups in cities across the globe. The meetups were open to all technical women which gave potential members of Systers an opportunity to learn more about AnitaB.org, Systers, and the annual Grace Hopper Celebration. Additionally, women discussed ways to introduce computing fields to young girls and women in their local communities; a call-to-action goal to not only help to increase the number of women in computing fields, but be more engaged at grassroots level.
