Who are Your Heroes? Women in Computing event next week!

Who are Your Heroes?

Date - Time: 11 February 2015 – 6.30pm to 8:30pm

Place: University of Calgary, EEEL 161

There is a significant gender gap in the field of computing - women are disproportionately underrepresented in the field: in the classroom, in industry, and in leadership roles. Anita Borg’s life mission was to reduce this gap, because she believed women should have an equal impact on the technology which is prominent in our everyday lives. Now a community of women who have been inspired by her legacy is taking her mission worldwide. Our “Who are your heroes?” networking event on February 11, 2015 is part of a global series of events celebrating Anita Borg’s vision, and asks our participants to talk about prominent Canadian women in the field of computing. Join us for networking, conversation about our role models and heroes, and for light refreshments.
