Virtusa is Conducting Engineering Equity Hackathon | Apply Now

JOB ROLE: Engineering Equity Hackathon



  • Because company recognize individuality, uniqueness in ability, and the need to level the playing field to inspire growth as you learn. Equity is not about fulfilling a basic need but understanding unique requirements and providing the exact resources to succeed. Equity paves the way for achieving your goals and preparing for success.

    The Engineering Equity hackathon aims to address and solve the following societal problems:

    • Girls are less likely to study STEM subjects at school; a gap that continues through to university
    • Women are less likely to consider a career in technology than men
    • Major barriers include a shortage of women role models and a lack of understanding of how technology can enable women to change the world.
    • With the Engineering Equity hackathon, we are creating and enforcing the change you want to see – with a one-of-a-kind Virtusa global initiative calling out to all the talented women coders to take charge of their careers. We aim to incorporate tech solutions to resolve gender equity issues. With this contest, we intend to drive gender equality by empowering women to enhance their engineering prowess and boost talent.
