herHACK

<p id="isPasted"><strong>ABOUT #herHACK&nbsp;</strong></p><p>#herHACK is the largest female-led hackathon in Switzerland. The promotion of women in technical professions is more relevant than ever in view of the increasing shortage of skilled workers. With a share of around 80 percent, men dominate the tech industry. This makes it all the more difficult for women and other underrepresented groups to gain a foothold in this field. That's why #herHACK is taking place again this year. We will set you challenges within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and you will work on creative solutions in a limited amount of time. Of course, not only women but also genderqueer people are welcome.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p>Are you interested, at least 18 years old and do you have your own laptop?
