About Us


ABI.Local is a global network of local communities that connects women technologists around the world. ABI.Local offers meetups, codeathons, GHC/1s and other valuable events for technical women. We connect local women technologists and allies to expand their networks, engage in person and virtually to gain new, diverse perspectives, and navigate their technical careers with hands-on events to help them learn and grow.  

ABI.Local is presented by the Anita Borg Institute, a non-profit social enterprise with an important mission. We believe technology is a powerful force for good and want to help build a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies they build it for.

Where We Are

ABI.Local communities are active in many cities around the world, including Amsterdam, Boston, Chicago, New Delhi, London, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Tokyo, to name just a few.

Get Involved

We welcome all women technologists and allies to join ABI.Local to grow their network, attend upcoming events and engage with other members in our forum discussions. Make valuable new connections through our member database — filter by location, job function or company!

Once you register, be sure to find the ABI.Local community in your city and join the group! If you don’t see a community in your area, let us know you’re interested in helping build one. We’re currently seeking diverse Community Leaders, Moderators and volunteers around the world.
