About TechTogether

TechTogether works to elevate the access, exposure, and inclusion of gender-marginalized individuals in interdisciplinary fields of technology. We do this by hosting events like hackathons, promoting inclusivity-focused research, and providing professional development resources.

TechTogether was founded in 2017 as SheHacks by 13 college students across Boston. What was once a one-time event is now a national organization that serves individuals around the world.
