Calling on all 100 Women members and supporters!
Hackathon Goal: Reach 100 members by End of Financial Year!
We need your help. We have a crazy, ambitious goal to get our 100 members by the end of financial year!
The details of our Hackathon are:
Monday, 9th June 2014 6.00 – 8.30pm
Southcare Central Corner of Bickley Crs and Pether Rd, Manning
Bring: a plate of food to share, your laptop, iPhone, tablet and most importantly your little black book of contacts!
Please share this event with your networks; we would love to see as many people as possible there to help us strategize how we reach 100 amazing members.
Let’s hack your kids school newsletter, hack talk back radio, hack social media, hack your work place intranet – we want everywhere you turn to be mentioning 100 Women for the next month.
Imagine if we can get all our memberships within 5 weeks – what an amazing accomplishment! We can then concentrate solely on finding truly amazing grantees and building relationships within our membership through the Connect events.
We have a plan! Alicia recently attended a workshop by Randi Zuckerberg (sister of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg) who talked about a ‘Hackathon’. While the concept was originally used by IT and graphic design professionals and had then working long hours in a dark room fuelled by energy drinks to complete a development task, it has now expanded and is used across multiple industries.
A Hackathon event is a fast-paced, creative process where we don’t just collect ideas for the committee to action later on but empower you, our members and supporters to get to work straight away and be part of making this goal a reality.
