Use technology to create solutions for some of the most pressing diversity and inclusion challenges of our time – create Solutions with a Conscience!

Join Capgemini on August 11-12 in New York City for our Social Good Hackathon. You'll work with and alongside bright and inventive peers to help businesses solve their problems – with a conscience. Participants will compete for prizes, recognition, and a chance for their solution to be chosen as the real-world answer to a company's problem. You'll have access to mentors and peers with the knowledge to help you succeed, as well as representatives and judges from top tech companies such as AWS, Salesforce.com, Microsoft, and IBM. Plus, we'll feed you! Free food and drink, in addition to some other cool goodies and activities throughout the weekend. This event is FREE to all participants; unfortunately we are not able to cover any travel costs.
