At the Anita Borg Institute, we celebrate and highlight the success of women technologists. Through their achievements and life stories, the ABIE Award winners demonstrate that each of us has the power to improve our world, individually and collectively.

We are inspired by the award winners’ examples, moved by their sacrifices, and stirred by their extraordinary commitment to excellence, progress, and creative problem- solving. The Anita Borg Institute has created a set of awards to honor women making significant contributions to technology.

Recipients will be honored at the annual Grace Hopper Celebration Conference in October 2014 in Phoenix, AZ.
