Dr. Anita Borg was a computer scientist in the Office of the Chief Technologist at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). A visionary who started the first e-mail network for women in technology, "Systers," Dr. Borg also co-founded the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, the enormously successful technical computer science conference inspired by the legacy of Navy Admiral Grace Murray Hopper and featuring successful women in computing. She also founded the Institute for Women and Technology, an experimental R&D organization focusing on increasing the impact of women on technology and the positive impact of technology on the world's women. At the Institute, technologists, social scientists and community members work together to create technologies based on women's needs, situations, and genius.
