Hall of Fame: Spotify's Diversify Hackathon

Spotify's Diversify weekend hackathon has gained a spot in our GenderAvenger Hall of Fame, and it is one of our favorites. For Diversify, "…instead of hoping to achieve diversity amongst our attendees, [they] decided to make it a core requirement." Not only that, but they shared at length how they created an event with a focus on diversity. Out of 40 participants, they had 17 women and 23 men. Congratulations on reaching 43%!

Celebrate Diversify's commitment to gender balance:
