Discussing Actionable Steps Toward Inclusive and Effective Tech Spaces

2:00pm to 2:50pm
Rincon Room

Join the planning team of the Women Techmakers Tucson Hackathon in a discussion about inclusion in tech and how it can positively impact the functioning of teams. We will share research and experience-based tips for developing supportive learning and working environments by discussing the event logistics, successes, and opportunities deriving from the planning and execution of a women’s-only hackathon. The discussion of the women’s hackathon will serve as a generative framework for participants to think about when considering issues and opportunities regarding inclusion in their respective spaces. This presentation will host a collaborative brainstorming session centering on participants’ experiences, and their desires to improve their department’s culture around tech.
