A hackathon for equality

Findwise had the great pleasure of hosting a hackathon together with the organization Pepp! Pepp is an initiative that aims to get more women into engineering professions, e.g. through mentoring programs. In total 35 girls and women studying in high school and at the university got an introduction to programming given by Findwise co-workers, during the following hackathon they got to try to code a range of different tasks. For many of the attendees this was their very first coding experience, and it was much appreciated.

Findwise wants to see an increased diversity amongst the tech companies, and works to get more young people, especially girls, into the IT industry.
