Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On Awards for Women in Technology 2020
What You Need to Know About the Pass It On Awards Program
Basically, AnitaB.org recognizes the achievements of women in IT and organizations that recognize their value, through a variety of awards.
Above all, the AnitaB.org Systers Pass It On Rewards program honors Anita Borg’s desire to create a network of female technologists who help each other. The cash prize helps fund women in Technology or projects that inspire and help girls and women get started in IT.
Equally, they encourage recipients to “convey” the benefits they receive from the award, creating a women’s movement that helps women. And these awards get their fund by generous donations from Systers, basically their Anita Borg online community.
Most importantly, AnitaB.org continues to extend its global reach to women who are currently considering and seeking technical careers in IT. Basically, through in-person and online programs such as our Abie Awards, local AnitaB.org communities and a variety of social networks.
Finally, they are here to break the limits, advocate for change and remain persistent in the face of adversity.
