BELMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AnitaB.org, the non-profit social enterprise committed to increasing the representation of women technologists in the global workforce and host of the global AnitaB.org Grace Hopper Celebration events, the largest gatherings of women technologists in the world, today announced the opening of its new global headquarters in Belmont, California.
The new headquarters located off of U.S. 101 between San Francisco and Silicon Valley features a state-of-the-art women’s technology training and conference center available to allied organizations. AnitaB.org made the move to better support its growing team and ambitious goal of spurring the industry to reach 50/50 gender parity in technology by 2025. The space will serve as a home-base for the women technologists and corporate clients AnitaB.org works with and supports every day and will better position the nonprofit to lead the global Women’s Tech Equity Movement.
“This new Global Tech Center Headquarters will position AnitaB.org to influence the women’s tech equity movement to reach 50/50 by 2025 male/female gender parity,” said Brenda Darden Wilkerson, President and CEO of AnitaB.org. “AnitaB.org will serve as a model for women, allies, and institutions to aspire to accelerate the pace of change and make tech richly diverse.”
While the AnitaB.org team already occupies its new office space at the new HQ, the new Tech Center is currently under renovation. The new space will open in the fall and provide clients, customers and allied organizations a place to interact and understand the Women’s Tech Equity Movement.
