Latinas in Computing Wiki

The Latinas in Computing (LiC) community was established with the help of the Anita Borg Insitute for Women in Technology (ABI) after a Birds of a Feather session at the 2006 Grace Hopper Conference entitled Latinas in Engineering. There, a group of energized Latinas from industry, government labs and academia discussed the strengths of this growing community and the misconceptions affecting its members.

Use this wiki to collaborate and share information with members of the community.
