As the data from this report demonstrates, TechTogether continues to serve as a gateway for gender-marginalized youth to enter the hackathon community and tech industry.

TechTogether is on a mission to create safe spaces for gender-marginalized youth to build, learn, and hack on projects. Our aim is to increase the gender-diversity and inclusivity of the hackathon community.
