A Social Innovation Hackathon, presented by Girls in Tech SF & Hackbright Academy

Girls in Tech San Francisco chapter is thrilled to announce a 24-hour hackathon called Hacking for Humanity. Join us at DocuSign on July 8-9 as we innovate for social change for females. We’re tackling topics that deal with girls and women including (but not limited to) the following:  

  • Homelessness
  • Sexual Assualt
  • Domestic Violence
  • Human Trafficking
  • Women’s Health

Hackathons exist to enable the rapid prototyping of a complex problem and provide a range of solutions in a short period of time. By hacking with us, we are aiming to think bigger for global change with tech, whilst also allowing impassioned women to engage in innovation and entrepreneurship within our tech ecosystem.

We are calling all women and men across the globe, including developers, designers, product developers, and entrepreneurs, plus businesses that want to embrace the idea of Social Innovation or initiatives that combine a positive mission with business.

This hackathon is beginner friendly and for participants new to coding or hackathons. However, any and all levels are welcome. No team? No problem. You’ll get opportunities to network and connect with like-minded hackers in our community before any hacking begins. Form a team, solve a problem, create something awesome, present it to the audience and win prizes! Register to be a hacker here.
