Hack the Gap is a two-day hackathon aimed at creating a high-energy weekend where women and non-binary people from all backgrounds and experience levels can enjoy an accessible, approachable, positive experience.


To have fun, connect with others and challenge yourself to build a weekend project with a team in a safe place to hack and explore and build without the headwinds of inherent bias and sexism in tech.


We need idea people, designers, data people, testers, and programmers. If you don't code, that's cool. Come as you are!

Hack the Gap is for female-identified and non-binary people. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.
