It is important to mentor women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers. As not only a woman-owned business, but home to several women team members, Indigo Interactive finds it imperative to help encourage women into the technology field.
Jamie Fiedler and Helen Levinson were asked to participate at Cleverbridge's (Chicago, IL) first hackathon. As business mentors, Helen and Jamie worked with over 10 teams to help build a product that would encourage more women to participate in STEM. The teams worked Friday to Saturday night on conception, execution and presenting their ideas and development.
Featured among Jellyvision and Cleverbridge CEO’s, Jamie participated as a judge on the SheHacksChi panel. Awarded projects included a female-friendly take on Browserstack, a coding application built into Tumblr and CreateHER- a mobile app that depicts STEM-friendly projects for young girls and students to complete and share.
