Shameless Promotion: Women of Vision Awards

We (Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology) had our inaugural Women of Vision Awards last night at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. It was fantastic and powerful. Over 500 people were there. Some photos we have of the event are posted.

We honored Radia Perlman of Sun Microsystems as a Woman of Vision in Innovation, Pamela Samuelson of UC Berkeley as a Woman of Vision in Social Impact, and Janie Tsao of the Linksys Division of Cisco as a Woman of Vision in Leadership. You can read their acceptance speeches and watch their videos through their respective pages.

You can also check out the coverage we got in the Mercury News (Technology's Women of Vision)
