Volunteer with AnitaB.org

Like most nonprofits, we rely on volunteers to accomplish most of our goals. From speaking at workshops and Virtual GHC to leading a local community and selecting award recipients, our volunteers have a direct impact on our mission. We’re changing the direction of tech, together.

We have volunteer opportunities throughout the year, although primary recruitment is around the Virtual Grace Hopper Celebration in fall. We’ll update this page as opportunities open.

Virtual Grace Hopper Celebration Opportunities

Our team starts recruiting committee volunteers in January. These individuals help us plan sessions, pick scholars, and review award applications. We also recruit volunteers for tasks at the celebration.

Community Leaders

Our network of locals, depend on dedicated individuals who help plan events, recruit members, and monitor their individual groups’ pages on our Community website. These Locals help women connect to others in their area and provide a space where they can share resources for navigating their career in tech.

Let us know how you want to be a local leader

Community Moderators

We also need help moderating the discussion boards – both within a Local and our global discussion. These volunteers assist in keeping our Community a safe place by watching for abuse.

Roe v. Wade Has Been Overturned. You Have Every Right to Be Upset. Here’s how to take action

We at AnitaB.org, are disheartened and dismayed by the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a landmark ruling that enabled the right of an abortion to people around the nation. AnitaB.org brings together allies and champions across every sector to advance intersectional gender equity in technology. The technologists we support are also people impacted by targeted oppressive and unjust laws including laws that restrict reproductive rights. Not only do we empower technologists through our year-long programming but, we also advocate for better systemic solutions for the workforce and for their humanity. 

In response to the Supreme Court ruling, we are joining to elevate the calls to action of our social justice colleagues and community partners. 

If you feel called to do something today or in the next coming days, here are some action steps:  

  • Support and donate to Repro Legal Defense Fund, which is a national organization that covers bail and funds strong defense for people who are investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for abortion. Because no one should be behind bars for ending their pregnancy or helping someone else do so.
  • Support and donate to Plan C, an educational resource for learning about how people in the US access abortion pills.
  • Support and donate to your local Planned Parenthood, independent abortion clinics, and abortion funds.
    Go to the streets and join a protest near you. Most protests are happening today at 5 PM at the federal courthouses or state capitols

AnitaB.org is also launching a political advocacy series, Power to the People, with our first event on July 20th. The first event of this series, Power to People: Abortion Rights and Digital Privacy, will elevate the voices of abortion advocates and the risks emerging with digital rights and privacy. This event will empower you to take additional action regarding abortion rights and data privacy. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming event.
