Overview

Women are a dreadfully underrepresented group in almost all divisions of tech. There is no doubt that the tech industry can tangibly benefit from an increase in gender diversity. A lot of tech giants have realised the pros of a varied and diverse workforce. Not only the giants but, today, on a global scale the entire Industry is recognising the importance of gender diversity and how it leads to better problem solving and overall business management.

Many young people don’t even know what they can achieve with technology and young girls, especially, might be put off because they believe it to be abstract and gendered. We want young female developers across the globe to realise and see how technology can be used to help people with a fun, social, real-world challenge while demonstrating all the things that define a great hacker. This hackathon will hopefully encourage young women developers to take an interest in engineering and technology.

So, we are launching International Women Hackathon 2018 to celebrate and promote women developers across the globe. With that spirit, HackerEarth and Schlumberger invite all women developers and hackathon enthusiasts to participate in an interesting and engaging hackathon.
