Women have been involved with computing since the dawn of the computing age! Yet, alarmingly the percentage of women in computing has steadily declined since the mid 80’s. Information Technology is rapidly transforming our lives, and it is essential that we celebrate the contributions women have made in the story of computing, and explore what opportunity lay before us as we continue to make HERstory.
Please join us as we recognize our computing heritage and look toward the future of a world where women equally influence the direction of the world through information technology and computing. Inspiring you to answer the question…. how will you make HERstory?
