Over the past year, there have been endless conversations about the disconnect between the profound technological innovations emerging from San Francisco and Silicon Valley and the deep injustices which continue to permeate many aspects of our society. Meanwhile, women of color, particularly Latinas, Native Americans, and Black women, continue to face unprecedented challenges with regards to their physical and emotional health, financial well-being, and general quality of life as our world and economy rapidly shift.
You are cordially invited to Part I of a two-part series focused on developing technology-based solutions to the myriad concerns of women of color in 2014.
This Sunday we'll be conducting an idea hack where we brainstorm and develop ideas for potential web and mobile apps to address everything from challenges regarding education, employment, health care, childcare and more. There is a code of conduct in place, inspired by the work of folks like Hackbright Academy, Trans*H4CK & Model, View, Culture.
Part II of the series will follow in mid-September when a two day hackathon will take place in San Francisco.
We will be using the #ideahack hashtag throughout the day.
If you're unable to attend but wish to contribute, please consider donating using the payment option below. Though this event is oriented towards improving the lives of women of color, everyone in the general public is invited to participate.
