We’re bringing civic tech to SheHacks Boston


Published by:

Digital Team

This Saturday, part of our Digital Team at the City of Boston will be mentoring and speaking at SheHacks.

The hack-a-thon aims to inspire young female and non-binary individuals to join, grow, learn, and be empowered within the technology industry. We’re pumped — an event like this is right up our alley. Why?

Because we need amazing individuals in government technology. We want to blast away preconceived notions of what a digital team in the government might “look” like, and might do. By finding this blog post, you already have more knowledge than most — you know we exist as a team.

We’ll be talking about why we’re all working for local government and how that affects our daily lives. We’ll also be showcasing some examples of how our team of product managers, engineers, designers, and content strategists are making a difference. We hope to provide some relevant, real-world examples for aspiring coders to join us.
