Systers Pass-It-On To #Tech4Good

TRACK: Community

Systers Anita Borg Pass-It-On (PIO) program was created by the Systers community in honor of Anita Borg. The concept was born out of Systers passing on the benefit received from being part of the community to other women outside of Systers. Small amount of grant fund is provided to women 18 years old and the funds must be used to help other women or personal education and technology. Many of our PIO recipients have used their PIO fund to help fund educational expenses, start or continue tech projects for girls or women. The PIO chairs will introduce the audience to the program and engage discussion with past PIO award winners on how they have benefited from the program and how they are passing it on.
