Overview

Update: Due to the current COVID-19 situation there has been a delay in announcing the results. Please expect the results to be announced by the first week of July.

The annual International Women's Day hackathon is back with its 6th edition - the IWH 2020.

This edition of the International Women's Hackathon focuses on being an all-women hackathon and a platform for them to showcase their true talents and build ideas in significant sectors such as Financial Technology, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Blockchain.

Women are a highly underrated group in the STEM field. With only 20% of tech jobs being held by women, it is high time to bring about a change. Stereotypes, bias, lack of mentors, and the overall gender inequality are some of the major factors that hold women back from pursuing their interests and realizing their potential.

The International Women's Hackathon 2020 supports the UN's theme for International Women's Day - "Think equal, build smart, innovate for change," and promote women developers around the globe. With that spirit, HackerEarth launches the IWH 2020 on the International Women's Day and invites women innovators, developers, creators, designers, and hackathon enthusiasts to showcase their projects to the world and take them to the next level.

This hackathon will hopefully encourage more young women developers to take an interest in engineering and technology.
