Would you recommend Black Women in Computing, an Anita Borg Institute Community?

by Rose R. from MD (Administrator for this Organization) (August 2, 2014)
This organization is focused on increasing awareness of participation of Black Women and other underrepresented minorities in the tech field. They do this through computing workshops, mentoring, support and much more. A great organization to volunteer in their events.
