A Hackathon for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
What is a hackathon?
… hackathons in recent years are more like gathering different domain talents like data scientists, designers, businessmen, and engineers in groups to work on a project in one to three days.
Yes hackathons can be predatory and I don’t like how they are competitive.
Principles for a collaborative hackathon would be similar to those for my Proactive Community of Practice:
- Diverse / International in scope (OK that is even ambitious for me!)
So not only do I want to create an inclusive, collaborative hackathon, I want to do it for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion problems.
My problem stories as a starting point:
- Not The Only One – how can I change the format around to be less about twitter – the format is actually doing well in itself.
- Call It Out – a website to allow someone from within the organisation to identify the lack of diversity in their leadership team in a scalable way.
So I will need help – anyone want to join me?
