Event Description

Looking for ways to #EmbraceEquity this International Women’s Day? Here’s some good news: You’ve got the opportunity to take a stand, address inequality and make a genuine human impact during Avanade’s first-ever IWD global hackathon, a two-day hacking event designed to generate tech solutions for some of today’s most pressing equity issues.

Held in collaboration with Major League Hacking, Women in Cloud and the International Rescue Committee, we challenge you to hack and create solutions around reducing bias, taking action, celebrating difference and allyship, so we can do what matters in honor of International Women’s Day. The top prize-winning team will be awarded $8,500 USD, plus a 45-minute meeting with the Avanade executive leadership.

Sign up as a team of up to 4 to hack a solution over the weekend of 4-5 March 2023. This is your chance to use your unique skillset and perspective to make a difference in the future of equity – we can’t wait to see what you create!
