Original Post:

Inreact is proud to announce its participation in the Unite & Fight Hackathon organized by the Wyncode Academy. This one-day hackathon is geared at uniting the tech community at large in the fight against racism: the benefits and uses of technology to design education, resources, and training apps to combat racism. 

By sparking up ideas and the flame inside our bellies, at Inreact we hope the hackathon participants will come up with a host of valid racism-fighting designs. These will be presented to a panel of judges, technical experts and community leaders in September 2020. The winning project will go on to meet with Mayor Francis X. Suarez of Miami and will be presented on stage at the eMerge Americas conference in November.

Set up as a virtual event, the Unite & Fight Hackathon is due to take place on Friday July 17th from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm*. However, on days prior, there will be pre-Hackathon information sessions via Zoom. On July 7th and 14th, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, participants may join to find out more concerning scheduling and other relevant information before kickoff. On Thursday July 16th, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, there will be Lightning Talks featuring Black Leaders from the community, addressing what it means to be black and shedding insight into the problems and issues addressed during the hackathon.

Then comes the tricky part of having them hang around long enough, or stay, to explore your corporate ethos, service offer, brand identity, and content messaging, ultimately to become leads or right-out clients.
