GovHack Women

GovHack Women, 2017

Last night, on a truly horrendous evening weather-wise, we were incredibly happy at the turnout for our pilot GovHack Women storytelling/info-sharing event in Wellington :)

Women from a huge range of backgrounds gathered together to find out more about GovHack NZ, how it works and what it’s all about, hear from women who’ve participated or helped organise before, and have their questions answered.

One of the best bits – other than the fantastic humour, curiosity and camaraderie of the evening – was that it looks like many of the women who attended are now considering participating in GovHack! Yay!!

If you’re curious about the event, we’ll leave the link for it up on our Register page – people will be posting comments, links, questions and more into the event over time :)
