DIVERSITY IN TECH

Hack'n'Lead brings together tech and business experts with the aim of increasing diversity in tech

WHAT WE OFFER

GUIDANCE

On top of the usual tech talks, sponsors, ambassadors and community partners will provide on-site mentors, who are specialists in their domains. They can guide you and answer career-related or technical questions as you work on your projects.

CHILD CARE

Need a baby sitter so you can attend the event? We care about you being a parent and we care about your children. That's why we offer on-site child care. Additionally, every girl and boy at the age of 4+ will be able to attend afternoon coding 4 kids sessions, thanks to our friends at Youth Intelligence Agency

PREP EVENTS

Never been to a hackathon? Or maybe you have been to one, but would love to learn more about how you can prepare for Hack'n'Lead? This will be perfect for you! Throughout 2019 Women++ will be holding workshops and posting content so you can prepare and make the most of this experience. See our Workshop's page

SAFE SPACE

Hack'n'Lead is a friendly space for you to explore career options, learn new things, invent novel solutions and meet interesting people. Expect healthy food and activities, which will feed your brain with great ideas. Have fun and build cool prototypes with your team. And we promise: you won't be the only woman in the room!
