Welcome to the first ever NY Capital Hackathon for Inclusivity: NYχ! (pronounced NY Chi) We will be hosting a 2-day hackathon for women (cis and trans) and genderqueer students in the New York Capital Region.
The goal of this hackathon is to provide a safe environment for our attendees to discuss issues relevant to the gender gap prevalent in academia and the greater technology industry as a whole. By focusing on women and genderqueer students for our event, we hope to instill confidence in our attendees and cultivate community among underrepresented groups within the Capital Region; ultimately creating a more inclusive tech industry further in the future.
- Who: All high school, undergraduate, and graduate women (cis and trans) and genderqueer students in the Capital District Region
- When: April 16–17, 2016
- Where: Low Center for Industrial Innovation (CII), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY.
Update 4/6/16: If you did not register before April 6th and you attend a Capital Region school, we may be unable to provide you with transportation to the hackathon. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have finalized transportation at this point, so check with us to see if we are able to provide transportation for you.
