Branch support for DiamondHacks

The Tar Heel branch is pleased to be able to support the DiamondHacks project at NC State University. This is in the spirit of our 2014 support of PearlHacks at UNC Chapel Hill.

What are these events? Like other “hackathons” they concentrate on bringing teams together for an intensive weekend event with team building and problem solving. These, though, are different in that they are restricted to women students — making them more welcoming and engaging and eliminating the implicit bias that can make it difficult for women to claim their place a the technical table.

Solving the Equation

We are very excited that this event is happening just as AAUW releases its most recent report, Solving the Equation: The Variables for Women’s Success in Engineering and Computing that focuses specifically on the STEM fields with the fewest women and most jobs.  Learn more:
