SINC_HACK >17%

  • Sussex Innovation Centre Brighton BN1 9SB United Kingdom (map)

As part of Brighton Digital Festival and in honour of Ada Lovelace Day (9th October), Sussex Innovation Centre is hosting its first hackathon! The inaugural SINC_HACK is based around the theme of >17%.

Women make up just 17% of employees the UK tech sector, and only 17% of start-ups have female founders. The problem has many contributing factors, from the stigma around girls going into STEM subjects, to the gender pay gap, unconscious bias in the workplace and under-representation of women in management roles.
