Mrs Bianca Debaets meeting "Gender-hackers".

On 24 November the BRIC hosted a hackathon of a rather special kind: this was the Amazone Gender Hackathon, which aimed to promote gender equality in the Brussels Region through the development of gender-smart applications based on open data.

State Secretary Bianca Debaets came to meet the five participating teams.

The projects were of high quality, and the best was rewarded by a professional jury at the end of the day.

The winner was Make Equity, an app that manages the sharing of household chores between couples (married, divorced or simply housemates).
