Softchoice’s Leading Women Committee in partnership with Softchoice Cares is excited to announce the first ever Softchoice Women in Technology Hackathon
On October 26, 2016, we welcome female employees, customers/partners and students for a day invention, collaboration and imagination in an effort to inspire future generations of girls to develop careers in the area on Information Technology.
Groups will be comprised of employees, clients/partners and students in Softchoice offices across Canada and the USA. Groups will spend the day working together to create a concept for a product, service or initiative that will improve the lives of young women and girls in disadvantaged communities, locally or globally. Although teams will work together within their designated offices, we will be in contact throughout the day via Skype for Business
At the end of the day-long session, the groups will present their ideas to an esteemed panel of judges comprised of women in senior leadership positions within Softchoice. The panel will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Awards will be presented to the student in each winning group in the form of a grant for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program in their local area.
1st Place $2500
2nd Place $1500
3rd Place $1000
