Description The first all-women’s hackathon at the University of Pittsburgh. The hackathon is co-hosted by the Department of Computer Science, Innovation Institute, Pitt WiCS, and Pitt SWE. This event encourages the participation of all female Pitt students, including but not limited to computer science, business, engineering, and law. This event prides itself on providing a safe place for women to come together to learn, grow, hack, and empower each other. The She Innovates Kick-Off Party features: team formation, for those without a team, idea pitching for those without a hacking idea, and Q & A. We have mentors on-site to help guide students through the hacking process. Throughout the weekend She Innovates features keynote speakers and talks about business and tech. Each team pitches their idea to a panel of judges, and there is an awards ceremony to announce the winners and award the prizes.
