HACK: Diversity in Tech
TechArb & Michigan League​

Less than 10 percent of the tech industry workforce is black or Latino. Less than 13 percent of the industry is women. We believe that tech can hack its own problem. You're invited to HACK: DIVERSITY IN TECH. Whether it is an app, game, or website, we're looking for your ideas to engage minority youth in tech and entrepreneurship. Join as a pre-formed team or come on your own to form your team at the event. To sweeten the pot, we've arranged for prizes: $1000 to the first-place team and $500 to the second-place team!
