Girls in Tech, an organization focused on the empowerment, entrepreneurship, engagement, and the education of women in technology, will host its first-ever Hacking for Humanity competition at AZ CoWork on November 9 and 10 from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The social innovation code-a-thon aims to tackle local challenges on a global scale and will benefit a local nonprofit.
The hack-a-thon, sponsored by Marsh, is open to anyone (male or female), ages 16 and up who have an interest in community involvement or sustainability, including students, developers, designers, scientists, product developers, entrepreneurs, and educators of all skill levels. The cost to participate is $25, and includes food, drinks, mentorship and speaking sessions.
No technical skills are required to attend and mentors will be on hand to guide attendees throughout the weekend.
