This event is open to all genders.
The holiday season is the perfect time to give back, so we have collaborated with Chime for Change and Twitter to build a hackathon in support of women and girls.
#CHIMEHACK is an opportunity for the tech community to convene to create mobile solutions in support girls and women. The hackathon will be giving away huge cash prizes to the teams that build the best solution for great NGOs like UNICEF, UN Women, and Vital Voices.
