The #DesignHackathon was an event that brought together female students studying fashion, technology, and business to design a phone case, write a business plan, and create a website to raise awareness for young women in STEM. The event included a mentorship panel featuring women role models from Verizon, TOMS Shoes, the fashion brand Rebecca Minkoff, Cornell Tech, and WiTNY (Women in Technology and Entrepreneurship in New York). Special thanks for Apple for providing iPad pros for the students to use at the event!


My Social Canvas is proud to join forces with UNICEF Ambassador Dayle Haddon's nonprofit organization, WomenOne. WomenOne works to ensure that every woman and girl has access to a quality education. To kick off #Design4HerEducation – a design contest, scholarship competition, and awareness campaign – My Social Canvas and WomenOne invited the next generation of designers to "Educate a Girl and Change the World." Student designers were asked specifically to submit designs embodying this message with the ultimate reward being a scholarship and the chance to design a new collection from which a portion of proceeds supports girls' education around the world.
