The 2019 Grace Hopper Celebration India (GHCI 19) kicked off yesterday, with thousands of women technologists coming together to network, find support, and celebrate the achievements of women in tech. During the Celebration, Brenda Darden Wilkerson, President and CEO of AnitaB.org, spoke of our goal of reaching 50/50 tech equity by 2025. She acknowledged the progress made in India, where about one third of the IT sector is female.
