Here is a blog post from Arfah telling us more about the event.
This years theme for International Women’s Day is “Make It Happen”. The main objective of this event is to raise awareness about diversity issues and lack of women in tech, and to attract more young women to consider careers in tech/digital sectors.
Theme & Teams
The theme for the projects is “diversity in tech”. We will be building open source projects which will help women discover more about the tech industry and opportunities it offers. We are keeping the guidelines fairly open as we want to encourage participant to come up with their own creative solutions to this problem. Registrations are open to idea masterminds, developers, designers and marketers.
We are expecting around 50 attendees on the day. The group will be divided into 5 people teams.
There will be 4 or 5 judges in total and the judging will take place from 2:30pm onwards on Sunday 8th March 2015. Our first judge confirmed is Gen the Director of Women Who Code in London and others are currently being confirmed.
