Systers - Institute for Women and Technology

Systers is a forum for all women involved in the technical aspects of computing. The list has over 4,000 members from at least 54 countries around the world. We welcome the participation of women technologists of all ages and at any stage of their studies or careers. Systers is the world’s largest email community of women in technical roles in computing. It was founded by Anita Borg in 1987 together with 12 other women as a small electronic mailing list for women in “systems”. Anita’s vision in creating Systers in 1987 was to “increase the number of women in computer science and make the environments in which women work more conducive to their continued participation in the field.”

Systers continues to serve this purpose by providing women a private space to seek advice from their peers, and discuss the challenges they share as women technologists. Systers is curated by the current Systers-keeper, Rose Robinson. Systers Wiki. Systers is an international community of 3,000 women involved in technical-computing founded by Anita Borg in 1987 as a small electronic mailing list for women in “systems”.

April, Groupe de travail « Diversité » Contexte Ce groupe interne, créé en janvier 2008, travaille à la diversité des membres de l'April.

April, Groupe de travail « Diversité »

Le groupe de travail diversité de l'April vise à promouvoir l'accueil de toutes les différences dans le monde du Libre. Si le constat révèle une certaine homogénéité des profils (hommes, blancs, éduqués, informaticiens...), tout le monde est concerné par la liberté et chacun peut trouver sa place. Les valeurs du libre, l'ouverture des logiciels et la disponibilité de l'information portent un universalisme qui a vocation à être approprié par tous. Ainsi, plutôt que de se focaliser sur le constat d'un manque de diversité, et alors que tout le monde s'accorde pour dire que favoriser la diversité c'est faire la place à des expériences et des points de vue différents, source d'enrichissement pour tous, le groupe de travail diversité se donne pour mission de promouvoir la diversité dans le monde du Libre afin de faciliter l'accueil d'un public aux profils variés.
