The Awards Banquet

I've had the pleasure of staffing the Anita Borg Awards and Change Agent Scholarships over this past year. Its been an even greater pleasure to finally meet the winners and spend some time with them. What (happily) surprises me about each of them is how 'ordinary' they are. Some people might describe them as 'approachable' but I think it is much more than that. Their respective accomplishments are amazing, but the fact that they are truly just 'regular' people with extraordinary committments to excellence and advancing women in technology is what truly inspires me. It gives me greater confidence in my personal ability to make a positive difference in this world.
