Celebrate Women in Tech and Women’s History Month 2018
A one day hackathon for women from experienced coders to total newbies.
Only 20% of hackathon participants are women, similar in scope to the underrepresentation of women in computer science and other tech fields.
For the last two years, The Expat Woman has been addressing this gender gap by hosting increditble all-women hackathons in San Francisco. All our hackathons have been sold out events with participants developing innovative websites, games, cloud based services, or mobile apps to address various challenges.
Join us on the occasion of International Women's Day, for our fourth All-Women Hackathon. The hackathon will be part of EMPOWERED - The Women's Leadership Summit on March 24, 2018  at Galvanize, San Francisco.
