American Library Association

The American Library Association (ALA) is the oldest and largest library association in the world. Founded on October 6, 1876 during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the mission of ALA is “to provide leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.” 

Marijke Visser was founded in 1994 by renowned computer scientist Anita Borg, Ph.D. (1949-2003). Formally known as the Institute for Women in Technology (IWT) and then Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology (ABI), is the new identity that still honors our founder while reflecting our move away from a formal, bureaucratic attitude toward a warmer, more personal feeling. The “.org” in our name acts as a reminder of our nonprofit mission.

At, we envision a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for whom they build it. We connect, inspire, and guide women in computing, and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.
