Anita's Quilt Launches Today

I'm excited to announce that a project I've been working on all year with some awesome women from the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology is launching today! We believe a personal story has the power to inspire, transform and shape others' stories.

Here is some info from the committee who put this together:

Anita's Quilt is an ongoing dialog of inspirational stories from women in tech supporting each other and individually striving to have more impact as technologists.

Today we begin publishing personal stories of actions that have increased impact. We start with a set of stories that highlight inspiring Systers. There are thousands of Systers (current and past) eligible to write stories, but we solicited just a few for this launch.

We are starting out with a story from Robin - Her Systers Keeper - on the general history and accomplishments of the Systers community, and will have new Systers stories through the Anniversary celebration at the Grace Hopper Celebration.
Help to spread the inspiration and forward the message to your communities!
