"Only by actively including women in the tech sector can we counter gender bias in the design and development of products. The HerHackathon is therefore an important and valuable format to obtain gender-inclusive solutions and anchor these in our society for the long term. As a platform for digital product building by women for women, HerHackathon contributes to advance digitalization innovatively and inclusively, for a more diverse tomorrow."
