Women's rights and social justice leaders and organizations around the world are addressing the most critical issues impacting vulnerable communities: reproductive rights and justice, gender-based violence and sexual assault, legal rights, LGBTQIA rights, discrimination and racism, access to education, political participation, and economic opportunity.

Through Tech2Empower, we bolster this movement by getting technology expertise to its leaders and organizations to amplify their impact.

In March 2019, we’ll bring together women's rights and social justice activists from nonprofit organizations across the United States for tech training and community-building in San Francisco. At the core of Tech2Empower USA is a project-based hackathon - Tech2Empower Impact Challenge for Women's Rights and Social Justice - held on March 8th, International Women’s Day.


Applications for Tech2Empower USA 2019 are now closed. If you are interested in participating, please reach us at connect@wakeinternational.org to inquire about the waitlist.
