Hackergal’s 11th National Hackathon

Online

Hackergal is a charitable organization that inspires girls across Canada to explore the opportunities in code. With women vastly underrepresented in the tech industry, Hackergal strives to inspire a new wave of Canadian female coders to bring equality to the booming industry. Hackergal’s Hackathon Program is designed to encourage learners to achieve their full potential through 6 Future-Ready Competencies. Learning to code and making a difference through technology goes beyond programming knowledge and skills. That’s why these core competencies equip girls with the ability to meet the complex demands of diverse contexts and be successful in their everyday lives and in their future. We believe that every girl can thrive when they are given the opportunity to tell their story and share their voice. We want to champion them along the way!
