SheHACKS is an all female high school Hackathon founded this year, with the aim to bridge the gender gap in the Computer Science field. As a team, we were frustrated with the current gender imbalance and so we decided that it was vital to inspire and encourage more girls to participate in this hackathon and explore the opportunities the tech field has to offer. We intend to organise a hackathon for girls aged 11-19 years old.
"Women no longer have an 'if I can' mindset. Now it's more about 'how I can'–be in tech, start something in tech, fund something in tech. That shift is exciting! And it happened because we created a network where we show, daily, that women are innovating."
