Earlier this week, we watched as Hurricane Irma made landfall over Florida. We remained in contact with those in the area, including AnitaB.org staff members as well as Grace Hopper Celebration vendors and contractors. We are thankful that they all are safe.
As the staff of the AnitaB.org watched Hurricane Irma shift west and then east on its path over Florida on Sunday and Monday, our primary concern remained with everyone affected by the storm. We were especially worried for our staff members who live and work in its path, and the many vendors and contractors in the region who are helping us prepare for the Grace Hopper Celebration next month.
