At AT&T, we have adopted a progressive approach to innovation – one that embraces openness and encourages collaboration between entrepreneurs and professionals of all genders and backgrounds. We believe that women have provided a critical spark to the tech industry and, with additional opportunities, the next generation of women professionals can be the catalyst we need to accelerate innovation and economic growth.
Our #WIThack hackathons are 24-hour challenges where participants form teams to create a mobile application and develop a working prototype that they present to win cool prizes.
We provide women with opportunities to lead diverse teams of men and women developers to create new innovative products. They will have access to AT&T APIs, developer resources and expertise to help them bring their ideas to life. Additionally, teams will have the opportunity to hear from and work with female leaders as they prepare their app prototype and business case for the final demonstrations.
