Systers, an Anita Borg Institute Community

A technical woman is never alone when she's a Syster. Founded by Dr. Anita Borg, in 1987 together with 12 other women as a small electronic mailing list for women in systems. Anita's vision in creating Systers in 1987 was to "increase the number of women in computer science and make the environments in which women work more conducive to their continued participation in the field." Systers has grown to include women from various computing disciplines, from more than 60 countries and more than 6,000 members. It will always be a private space for women in computing and technology.
