UCLE Women In Tech is aimed at diversifying the tech field by organising various events.
Our biggest event is @HackIT, which is a hackathon focused promoting on gender and skillset diversity. Our main objective is to decrease the gender gap in the field and provide an opportunity for participants to become closer to getting the job of their dreams.
This year we are running SWIT for the second year, which is a shadowing program aimed at university students and is exceptional due to having 100% female participants.
HackIT is a 24h hackathon promoting women in technology as well as diverse teams run by the Women-in-Tech division of UCL Entrepreneurs in London. We aim at diversifying the tech field, decreasing the gender gap and providing an opportunity for participants to become closer to getting the job of their dreams.
Its first edition will take place this year on the weekend of the 21st to the 22nd of November 2020.
