On June 9, 2016, Hack4Hope co-chaired the launch of She’s Pivotal: Transforming Who’s Building The World’s Software.
She’s Pivotal is a one-day event exploring exciting opportunities for today’s young women through real world stories and hands-on coding workshops. The event was sponsored by Pivotal in St. Louis. Special shout out to Parkway School District for our tech support!
This event, located at the T-Rex, offered real world stories, inspiration, netwoVrking, and hands-on workshops that explored exciting opportunities for today’s young women in a technological world. This workshop was for all young women who had an interest in the wide variety of careers in technology.
Through the workshop, the young women were encouraged to:
- Be inspired by successful professional women as they shared opportunities and challenges in building their careers and how they achieved success in a male-dominated environment
- Gain insight into new and emerging opportunities in technology fields
- Learn about local resources available to support them in their educational and career goals
- Network with professionals from many local area companies to learn not only how to network successfully, but also how to leverage those connections to build their own career success
- Gain hands on experience by participating in our fun, hands-on workshops
- Learn about valuable local internship opportunities
