Looking to fill more open tech positions with women, WomenHack makes its first stop in Asia.

WomenHack Vancouver; August 2017

 

Headquartered in San Francisco, WomenHack Events first started a year ago to overwhelming response from start-ups and companies all over the San Francisco Bay Area showing their support for diversity and inclusive hiring.

Believing that diversity strengthens teams and forging forward with our mission to present more economic opportunities to women in tech roles, WomenHack Events traveled to various major cities bringing together companies who are hiring and talented women in tech (developers, UI/UX designers, and PMs).

WomenHack has now worked with over 1,500+ women talents and over 450+ companies, from over 26 cities in 7 different countries. Tomorrow, WomenHack will be going to Singapore for the first time in a bid to help fill more open tech positions in Asia with women.

 

Our events aim to help diverse companies and talented women talents in tech roles meet each other in a casual setting. How, you ask? Through the time-honored technique of speed dating. Lasting around 2 to 3 hours per event, attendees of WomenHack Events can generally expect to be introduced to the hiring landscape in their region, to learn more about different companies, and meet not just the companies, but also their fellow peers in the industry.
