CANADA'S LARGEST 12-HOUR FEMALE HACKATHON
MARCH 16, WESTERN UNIVERSITY
What is SheHacks?
SheHacks is the largest All-Women's Hackathon in Southwest Ontario, hosted by the Women in Technology Society at Western University. Our focus is preparing women to thrive the technology industry regardless of: gender identity, background, major, or experience.
SheHacks makes technology accessible for all, attracting hundreds of diverse attendees and corporate leaders at the forefront of progress. More than just technical skills, our teams leave with genuine industry connections, a fortified sense of community, and inspiration to lead.
"SheHacks was a great opportunity to participate in my first Hackathon. Since I had no experience coding, I was too intimidated to join a Hackathon…. After SheHacks, I felt more confident in my capabilities in tech and since have been taking courses and workshops to improve my coding skills!"
- Tolu Aibana
"SheHacks was an unforgettable experience. I've always been a fan of hackathons but this is my first all-female one and I absolutely loved working with girls of all experience levels and disciplines. SheHacks provides an inclusive, welcoming and safe environment to practice our ideas, learn useful technologies, and make friends. Walking away from the event with a complete project definitely helped with my confidence and desire to participate in more hackathons in the future."
- Iris Zhou
"SheHacks was such an incredible, transformative experience! It was so inspiring to be surrounded by like-minded women with an interest in technology. What really stood out to me was how inclusive the event was – every member of my team came from a different educational background. Over the course of the day, I attended workshops, learned new coding skills, and met a bunch of amazing people I now call my friends."
