TechTogether is the nation's largest initiative to address the gender inequities in the hackathon community. We are credited in part with increasing the gender diversity of the hackathon community by 18% to 46% from 2017 to 2022.
TechTogether has served over 7,000 people of marginalized genders through our annual gender-focused hackathons hosted currently six cities: Boston, New York, Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, and Miami. On average, 50% of our hackers have never attended a hackathon before.
TechTogether serves people of marginalized genders, this includes transgender women, cisgender women, transgender men, non-binary individuals, and all gender identities which have been systematically oppressed by those in power throughout history.
In 2022, TechTogether was acquired by Major League Hacking to expand our programs and empower more hackers around the world.
