AnitaB.org 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), AnitaB.org 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.
