The #DesignHackathon was a competition that brought together female students studying fashion, technology, and entrepreneurship to compete for participation in a mentorship and job shadow experience of a lifetime and a VIP experience at Fashion Week in February 2017.
The objective of the event and campaign was to increase participation, awareness, and funding for women and girls in technology in a fun and creative way.
DESIGN FOR HER EDUCATION
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.
