Two out of five women get harassed daily online; In our effort to use technology to solve these problems, we are hosting a region-wide hackathon to provide a platform to identify solutions to online harassment of women and girls. In partnership with JIGSAW: a unit within Google whose mission is to create a safer internet for a better world.
This hackathon is open to all women - Software Engineers, Product Designers, Data scientists, Gender Specialists, Product Managers, Data Analysts, e.t.c. Over 100 innovators will take on the problem statement and provide innovative solutions that address women’s safety online across the globe.
The Women’s Safety Hackathon invites women and allies to create technical solutions using Google products to the problem of violence against women online.
