Third edition of the event will take place on the International Day of Women in Science

São Paulo, February 2020 - On the 11th (Tuesday), the Day of Women in Science will be celebrated internationally, a date created by the UN in 2016 in order to promote gender equality in scientific and technological sectors.

To celebrate the date, Laboratórios, an organization that seeks to develop talents for the digital world, will organize a hackathon to show companies the potential of students trained in their third bootcamp in São Paulo, which started in August 2019.

With a careful process, the Laboratory selects, every six months, about 60 women who did not have many opportunities in their lives to participate in the course. For 180 days, the students have classes from Monday to Friday, learning not only about technical aspects, which include JavaScript language, but also socio-emotional skills.

Divided into teams, about 60 students will have to solve challenges proposed by companies, which will send HR professionals and the development team to monitor the performance of each one and evaluate the possibility of hiring.

The event will take place at IBMEC-SP on February 11 and 12 and is sponsored by Bradesco, IBMEC, Raízen and Salesforce.


Laboratório is a non-profit social organization that trains women and prepares organizations to build a more diverse, inclusive and competitive digital economy across Latin America.
