Achievement Unlocked: WomenHack Enters its 20th City
WomenHack will be going to Denver/Boulder this Thursday in a bid to fill more open tech positions with women.
Headquartered in San Francisco, WomenHack Events first started out less than a year ago to overwhelming response from start-ups and companies all over the San Francisco Bay Area showing their support for diversity and inclusive hiring. Believing that diversity strengthens teams and forging forward with our mission to present more economic opportunities to women in tech roles, WomenHack Events traveled to various major cities bringing together companies who are hiring and talented women in tech (developers, designers, and PMs).
WomenHack has now worked with over 1,500+ women talents and over 170+ companies, from 19 cities in 3 different countries. On Thursday, we’ll be hitting a personal milestone and entering our 20th city with WomenHack Denver/Boulder, hosted by MapQuest!
Our events aim to help diverse companies and talented women talents in tech roles meet each other in a casual setting. How, you ask? Through the time-honored technique of speed dating. Lasting around 2 to 3 hours per event, attendees of WomenHack Events can generally expect to be introduced to the hiring landscape in their region, to learn more about different companies, and meet not just the companies, but also their fellow peers in the industry.
