Our corporate partner, Oracle, hosted ITSMF’s 3rd Quarter Symposium at their state-of-the-art technology center August 16th-18th.

The induction of ITSMF Fellows is an opportunity for ITSMF to recognize a lineage of leadership, service and distinction. Not only do we strive to pay tribute to greatness within the industry, but also the greatness that exists within the organization.

Hidden Figures and ITSMF
By Carla Ogunrinde, ITSMF Chairperson
February 2, 2017
Before the Oscar-nominated film, Hidden Figures, hit theaters, the words “black,” “women,” engineering,” “mathematics,” and “space race” would have seldom been organized into a single, coherent, and comprehensible sentence. But, thanks to Margot Lee Shetterly who authored the compelling novel the film is based on, those words now inspire a new way of thinking about the often-overlooked women who made a significant impact on the historic moments we honor today.
