The Expat Woman is a global network of over 6000 professional women designed to inspire, educate, empower and connect. Founded in San Francisco in 2013, we bring people together to meet & collaborate through events focused on business, career and professional development. We host a variety of events every month including women in tech, leadership and business panels, career workshops, job clubs, hackathons, startup pitch events.
- Create an inclusive and diverse community of international and American women
- Support women founders and women in business, technology and leadership roles
- Connect our network with investors, mentors, technologists, recruiters and leaders in the community
The Bay Area is a hotbed of hackathons but at almost every hackathon, women are under-represented. Women still make up the minority of workers in science, technology, and engineering fields. If we want to create inclusive tech communities, more women need to become active participants in their growth.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month on March 18, we are excited to host our exciting All-Women Hackathon. The women will pitch their ideas, work with new technologies, write code, and present their project to the community by the end of the day.
Teams of 4 – 6 women will make a website, game, cloud based service, application, or mobile app to address one of these challenges:
- Engage more Girls in STEM
- End the Gender Gap in Tech
- Women’s Empowerment
- Women’s Safety
- End Gender Violence
The judges and mentors will include both women and men working in tech, startups and venture capital and seed stage investment, and will offer feedback to the participants and also pick the winning teams.
