Gender Gap Datathon

Spread the love

What

A datathon is a hackathon using data. What’s a hackathon? It’s an extended period of hacking usually either with a theme or on a specific problem. As the Winter Of Data is run by 1 Million Women To Tech, an educational program of the US non-profit ABC Education, this will be your chance to do perhaps the world’s first Gender Gap Datathon. It will definitely will be the first online one, and the first 3 months long datathon.

When

Jan 21 – Apr 2, 2019, as per below.

Start

The Datathon details, data sources, and judging criteria will be announced on Mon Jan 21, 2019 – Week 2 – Day 1 of the Winter Of Data 2019 on YouTube live 6:30am – 7:00am Pacific Time. Join us live! The benefit to you is that you get to ask your questions live.

Who

Teams of 1-4 women may join. Men are unfortunately not allowed, but may share, mentor, donate, sponsor and hire.

How

The announcements, and datasets will be shared via the 1 Million Women To Tech – GitHub Classroom via private group assignment. You will need up submit your data analysis and visualizations using Jupyter Notebook by sending a PR from a branch to your own master. Thus Git and GitHub basics are essential for submission. Each team member must also have a valid 1millionwomentotech.com account where the bio and the project details must be filled in for PR purposes.

Why

An equal world. Because 216 years is too slow to close the gender gap. Let’s see what we can do about it, and do it! Let’s see an equal world in OUR LIFETIME.
