We’re heading down to DC today to present our Hacking the Gender Gap activity with HacDC. We’ll be giving a short presentation and then collecting more stories of people’s experiences with technology – the good and the bad – to see what we can learn from the group about where the gender gap arises. Read about our gender gap at the Women in Tech Summit or at AdaCamp and HOPE9. If you know anyone in DC, the event will start at 2 pm, you can read the details here. Thanks again to Katie at HacDC for inviting us!
