GraceNet Silicon Valley

GraceNet's several thousand women members gather in-person and online to strategise about gender-related issues they face in their high-technology professions. Monthly meetings have reportedly encouraged women to help each other find work and employees, enabling the creation of partnerships and new economic opportunities. GraceNet's "Disgraceful Award in Advertising" is an advocacy initiative to eliminate sexist advertising in high-tech media. As a result, many offenders, including IBM, have withdrawn their ads.
