Computer Science at Barnard and the Vagelos Computational Science Center, in collaboration with Columbia University Womxn in Computer Science, are hosting DivHacks on October 5th from 8 am to 9 pm at Barnard College in the Milstein Center. DivHacks is Columbia's premier diversity hackathon with an objective to create an empowering and inspirational space for underrepresented students in entrepreneurship and technology. For too long, the technology sector has prioritized the voices of the privileged at the expense of diverse peoples and points of view.
DivHacks introduces a space for disenfranchised communities to create technologies that reflect our diverse backgrounds and narratives. This year the theme is education for all! DivHacks is open to everyone regardless of gender or experience. Please register in advance at https://divhackscu.github.io/
