Tech Lady Hackathon, the annual daylong community event that began five years ago with a mission of getting more women and enbies into tech, is seeking two new co-organizers for its four-member leadership team.

“Organizers Jess Garson and Alexis Johnson-Gresham are starting new chapters of their lives in New York and Chicago, respectively. Current organizers, Joy Whitt and Kate Rabinowitz, hope you’ll help fill their (big) shoes!” Tech Lady Hackathon’s application states.

In October 2017, Tech Lady Hackathon drew 500 attendees, many of whom participated for the first time. The event provided an opportunity to collaborate and build, as well as attend workshops and discussions. The event was founded in 2013 by Leah Bannon. Whitt, Rabinowitz and Garson began leading in 2015 after Bannon moved to San Francisco. Johnson-Gresham joined the team in 2017.

For the volunteer positions, they are seeking women and enbies in the D.C. area with “great organizational skills, are clear communicators and have a passion for community building and diversifying tech.”

The co-organizers will have an equal voice in shaping the event, its goals and growth. Here’s more info on the specific roles the co-organizers will play:

We are looking for an organizer that will serve as a main point of contact for fundraising and finances. You’ll build our prospectus, secure funders, and help bring the Tech Lady vision to reality.

We are also looking for an organizer who will serve as a main point of contact for our volunteers and community. You’ll listen to community interests, manage volunteers, and help our Tech Ladies thrive.
