What is Shaking up Tech?

Shaking up Tech is a yearly event by universities for women and gender minorities who are beginning their path towards university studies and career choices. In Shaking up Tech we wish to give out a versatile understanding of technology as a field and career choice. The aim of the event is to inspire young people from genders underpresented in the field of technology to apply for a technical field after high school.
