Women are a highly underrated group in the STEM field. With only 20% of tech jobs being held by women, it is high time to bring about a change. Stereotypes, bias, lack of mentors, and the overall gender inequality are some of the major factors that hold women back from pursuing their interests and realizing their potential.
The International Women’s Hackathon 2019 supports the UN’s theme for International Women’s Day – “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change,” and promotes women developers around the globe. With that spirit, HackerEarth launches the IWH 2019 on the International Women’s Day and invites women innovators, developers, creators, designers, and hackathon enthusiasts to showcase their projects to the world and take them to the next level.
