Civic Hackathons

I got my start in tech through free, inclusive events in D.C. so naturally, one of my greatest fulfillments comes from organizing and managing civic hackathons | here are a few notables

Free, beginner-friendly workshops, discussions, and hacking projects for women and non-binary people. The 2017 Tech Lady Hackathon drew over 350 attendees, more than double the attendance of 2016. On top of the 15 workshops, 10 discussion groups, and 3 hacking projects, we were also able to provide professional head shots, career counseling, and stipends for speakers and other TLH contributors for the first time. | Recap of the event by the Washington Post Engineering Blog

Women and Youth in STEM & Entrepreneurship. I fully managed this incredible day of civic hacking and learning on behalf of the Mayor's Office, in partnership with The Washington Post.

I collaborated with several organizations, including BEACON: the DC Women Founders Initiative, Data+Women, DC Public Schools, My Brother's Keeper, and Code for DC | Recap from the Washington Post PR Blog

Although all three of us organizers were All Hands throughout the 3-month planning process, my primary objective for Tech Lady Hackathon #4 was to secure quality hacking projects. We successfully worked with impactful organizations like Mission: Launch, Think of Us, and Hear Me Code | TLH Hackathon Recap
