Description

What is Women in Tech Demo Day (WITDD)?
Women in Tech Demo Day, presented by Capital One and powered by AngelHack supporting Women Who Code, brings together hundreds of talented women and male allies – developers, designers and entrepreneurs – to compete in series of events designed to empower and support girls and women through technology.

Building on the impact of WITDD 2016, in 2017 the events will reach even more women and male allies in technology by challenging developers to build solutions that address key issues important to women in tech.

At Capital One, we think it’s vital to use innovations and talents for the greater good, and we invest in our communities so that more people have access to the technology they need to succeed in the 21st century. We’re proud to help foster a love of tech in girls and support women technologists to thrive in their careers, communities, and leadership.


Attendees at the WITDD 2017 events will address key issues important to women in tech, including:

  • Unconscious Bias: Create unique, technology-driven tools that can help anyone learn about how to identify, understand and improve the influence of unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Powered by Perspective: Create a tool that helps male allies learn ways to support women in the workplace and the tech community
  • Investing in Networks: Build technology that helps women in tech find resources, events, and networking opportunities to connect with other women in tech in their region
  • Celebrating Role Models: Develop a solution that highlights senior women leaders in tech and tells their stories, with the goal of inspiring girls and younger women to pursue tech careers

Here is a link to the Participation Agreement.
