About Systers

Systers Communities

It’s important to know that you are not alone. 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”.

Systers Portal is a unified platform for Systers and its sub-groups to share information and get the latest news. Special Interest communities are also offered where Systers can identify themselves culturally to share and offer support in challenges within their communities.
