"In a field lacking strong female voices and role models, Anita's Quilt, a project presented by the Anita Borg Institute, is dedicated to encouraging young women and women as a whole, to pursue and excel in STEM careers. Research continues to emerge that explains how and why many young women feel left-out of the STEM field and a recurring theme is a lack of adequate access to role models and mentors. This site aims to change that. Through sharing anecdotes and life stories, women who have succeeded in the STEM fields are able to inspire and help guide others."
