From the event organizer:
“#HypeHarvest was created to raise awareness and funds for the YWeb Career Academy, a YWCA Madison job training program created in partnership with Adorable to teach programming skills to women and people of color who are underrepresented in the technology field. Upon completion of the program students are provided with the tools they need to continue their learning, including a laptop and paid internship. The event is hosted by Adorable and the YWCA Madison.
Presentations will be given by past and current students, committed partners (those who’ve taken on interns from the past YWeb cohort), and other industry leaders. All proceeds go to the YWebCA.”
The recommended donation is $15 at the door or online.
