ElleHacks is the largest hackathon created for women and non-binary individuals of all experience levels, it is an event lead entirely by students with a background in STEM fields, proposed to challenge participants from different technical and creative disciplines to collaborate, learn, compete and show off their skills to solve real life problems in an inclusive and safe space.
Any skillset is welcome at ElleHacks, and at the end of the hackathon we expect all hackers to leave with a sense of pride in their ability to solve problems. In order to do this, a community of mentors and sponsors will be available to provide tools and experience.
This means you. Anyone willing to take on a problem and collaborate with others to solve it (second round application opens now).

The women's panel discussion addresses important issues relating to women 's leadership paths, the need for cultural and structural changes, the social and economic consequences of persistent gender inequality and how women can shape new leadership and power paradigms in different STEM fields.
Women are underrepresented in the tech world, but it’s up to us women to change that! We are creating a welcoming environment to show that there is a place in tech for every lady out there while building cool projects and sharing stories at ElleHacks.
Students of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, even if you’ve never written a line of code. We’re prepared to teach you everything you need to learn right here while also supporting the most experienced hackers.
