This inspiring video provides an overview of an event held in Rwanda as part of the 2014 Voices Conference in celebration of International Women's Day. It showcases the stories and amazing work being done by women leaders in tech to increase and empower the women in the region. These women who are "making it happen" are encouraging others to join them choosing technology to advance their careers and their communities. Special thanks to Emma Marie Ndoringoma and the group of women in Rwanda who are responsible for this inspiring work!
A group of dedicated women over at Google asked Global Tech Women to be part of a filming of friends and family who knew Dr. Anita Borg. She was a pioneer in technology and an early activist in the mission to increase the numbers of women who actively participate in the creation and innovation of technology around the globe.
The filming and editing of this video has taken 7 months and is one of the only comprehensive pieces on Dr. Borg's life. We hope you enjoy this video and share it with your friends and colleagues. Dr. Anita Borg inspired many of us here at Global Tech Women to pursue this vision and we know she will inspire you to think about your own path.
