We are proud to announce that our Vice President, Linda Kamau, is one of the winners of this year’s Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On award.
The Anita Borg Systers Pass-It-On (PIO) Awards honor Anita Borg’s desire to create a network of technical women helping one another. The cash awards, funded by donations from the Systers Online Community, are intended as means for women established in technological fields to support women seeking their place in the fields of technology. The program is called “Pass-It-On” because it comes with the moral obligation to “pass on” the benefits gained from the award.Linda intends to use this award towards the AkiraChix Training program to continue inspire and encourage young African women in technology.
Congratulations Linda, AkiraChix is proud of you :).
