From HITEC 2017 Building Inclusive Technology Communities Through Hackathons
HackHolyoke, the first student hackathon in the United States to achieve a 1:1 gender ratio, annually welcomes over 200 hackers from around the country to be fearless and truly innovative and to develop brilliantly new and disruptive technologies. In this session, HackHolyoke co-founder Eva Snyder and Major League Hacking’s co-founder Jon Gottfried will discuss how you can create inclusive technology environments for all students on your campus, including underrepresented groups, providing a safe space for beginners to take the first steps and also give advanced students the opportunity to learn something new.
