WomenHack kicks off August by entering its 17th city, San Diego.
Headquartered in San Francisco, WomenHack Events first started out six months 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).
It has been a whirlwind the past few months – we have now worked with over 1,500+ women talents and over 170+ companies, from 16 cities in 3 different countries. Here at WomenHack HQ, we are extremely grateful and appreciative of the companies and individuals who have come forward and expressed their support and commitment to diversity hiring, and for all the positive messages we received in our inboxes – thank you!
We are kicking off the month of August with our 17th city: San Diego! August will be an exciting month for us, as we bring our diversity recruiting events to a few familiar cities and enter some new ones in other countries as well! We are planning to go to the cities of Austin, Washington D.C., Detroit, Denver/Boulder, and Melbourne (Australia).
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.
