What we're about


(Formerly Honolulu Women in Tech)

We are a female-facilitated group where women in technology can meet in a safe, supportive, and judgement-free environment to empower one another by sharing and learning about tech-related topics, issues, and opportunities.

This meetup is open to all women (those who identify as female and those who use the pronouns she/her/hers), who:

• are in tech or are tech-adjacent, and/or are interested in tech-related topics (🤖TECH x 3!!!)

• want to meet other local tech-ladies 👯‍♀️

• want to foster a female-positive, safe, supportive, and judgement-free environment for learning ✨

• (Stretch Goal) want to collaborate on a zebra (https://medium.com/@sexandstartups/zebrasfix-c467e55f9d96) project 🦓

🙇‍♀️ Soft Opening Status 🙇‍♀️

Our weekly meetings will be in the following formats:

• Study Sessions 📚

• Discussion Sessions 🗣

Join us here and you'll receive a message with a link to join us on Slack.

Study Session Details 📚: Interactive study session series 🤓(4-8 weeks) in a topic selected by the group. For example, we will watch the designated weekly video (separately, on our own and using a MOOC like Coursera), and then meet up to discuss the concepts, ask questions, and generally help each other out with the coursework. As we progress with our course work, we can collaborate on a practical project to apply the new concepts and provide meaningful contributions to the greater community!

Discussion Session Details 🗣: Community roundtable-style discussions on a topic selected by group conscience.

Open Session Details 🌈: No defined agenda! Come work on your own projects, study together, ask all the questions on all the things, and/or just hang out and meet other tech ladies.

Zebra (https://medium.com/@sexandstartups/zebrasfix-c467e55f9d96) Projects Details 🦓: Working meetings to ideate, develop, and launch projects that align with the zebra startup ethos.

(A note on meetup format: there are some other fun ideas for this meetup - workshops, social gatherings, etc. - so we'll collectively reassess the format after a couple of months and pivot as necessary.)

We're so glad you found us and hope you'll join! 🙌🏽

Hawaii Women in Tech Meeting (Location: Online via Google Hangouts)

June 2021 - HAWT Monthly Meeting

Join us for a lively discussion on all things tech! The first half of the meeting will be an informal, open discussion on the topic "my career trajectory". We'll share our stories on how we got to where we are, expectedly or unexpectedly! The second half of the meeting is a project share by HAWT member Katannya. Katannya is a Data Scientist/Bioinformatician at a biotech startup and will share her side projects working with publicly available genomic data. She mainly use Python and R, but neither experience in those languages nor an understanding in genomics is required. Katannya will highlight how she use data produced by smart people at universities and funded by the government to ask interesting questions.
