She Sharp Hackathon is an all-female-led and non-binary 32 hour hackathon, which aims to help individuals to understand they belong in tech and that there are various roles you can have in the tech industry. Do you have a passion to save the planet, starting in our backyard? We’re bringing to life practical examples from the AI Forum’s recently published AI for Environment in Aotearoa New Zealand report. 

Join 60+ people for a weekend of learning, building, and connecting to build your tech skills and realise that you have allies who are supporting you every step of the way.
