As part of Brighton Digital Festival and in honour of Ada Lovelace Day (9th October), Sussex Innovation Centre is hosting its first hackathon! The inaugural SINC_HACK is based around the theme of >17%.
Women make up just 17% of employees the UK tech sector, and only 17% of start-ups have female founders. The problem has many contributing factors, from the stigma around girls going into STEM subjects, to the gender pay gap, unconscious bias in the workplace and under-representation of women in management roles.
On Saturday 6th October, we’ll welcome teams of developers, creatives, freelancers, students and researchers, who will work together over 12 hours to find and design innovative solutions to these challenges and more. There’ll be several bitesize learning and creative exercises throughout the day, delivered by the Sussex Innovation team and our partners. Finally, food, drink and SINC_HACK goodie bags will be provided, as well as prizes for the winning team.
Places are limited so once you have registered your interest you will be sent an application form to complete. Successful applicants will then be sent a “hack pack” with full details of the day.
If you have any questions about the Ada Lovelace Day events calendar, or have any other problems, please email us. Please note that you CANNOT add an event without registering for an account or logging in FIRST.
