BreakInequality Hackathon

November 26, 2016 @ 8:00 am - November 27, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

$10

This November, create something with tangible social impact and help empower women through technology. We have a limited number of spots available! This is an inclusive event; both men and women are encouraged to participate! Whether you are new to technology space or an experienced programmer, we want you to be involved.

Our Goal: Addressing The Gap in STEM

In North America, women are underrepresented in technology. In fact, in an average tech company only 30 per cent of workforces are female. In low-income countries, especially in rural areas, women are underrepresented across an even broader spectrum of education, rights and overall equal opportunities during the course of their lives.

BreakInequality together with our charity partner Plan International Canada in support of Because I Am A Girl seeks to close this gap in underrepresentation. This event will being female (and male!) developers in Canada together with Bangladeshi women to empower and provide accessibility to the next potential billion users.
