LadyHacks 2014 Partners with Women Techmakers on International Women's Day
The second Philadelphia LadyHacks took place on International Women’s Day and hosted 80 participants, a 20% increase over the first year. This number includes 16 technologists who donated their time and skills to serve as mentors, six volunteers who assisted with logistics, and six planning committee members. Roughly one third of our attendees were students, about 10% of attendees were women contemplating a career change into tech, and half of participants were women who currently work in the industry.
The hackathon raised $1,074 for TechGirlz, which wouldn't have been possible with the generosity of our 2014 sponsors: PipelineDeals, First Round Capital, Yikes, Inc., Monetate, Azavea, Play Eternal, Girl Develop It, Girl Geek Dinners, The Hacktory, Think Brownstone, and Duck Duck Go.
