While women are half of the overall workforce, they make up only a fraction of people in I.T.
Now in its seventh year, the Google Anita Borg Scholarship was established to help right this imbalance and encourage women to pursue careers in computer science and technology.
Last week, thirty Anita Borg Scholarship finalists and our NCSS Junior Anita Borg Scholars came together at Google Sydney as part of a retreat designed for women computer science students to connect and build relationships and receive professional development and training.
At the retreat, we also announced the final winners of our 2012 Anita Borg winners who received a scholarship towards their studies:
- Karla Burnett, University of New South Wales - undergraduate Anita Borg Scholar Scholar
- Mahsa Mohaghegh, Massey University in New Zealand - post grad Anita Borg Scholar
Congratulations also go to our finalists:
