We believe that diverse teams create the best products
A goal for us at Spotify has always been to take an active part in promoting inclusiveness and openness in the tech scene. We’re also firm believers that the best products are created when people with different backgrounds come together.
We’re therefore organizing an event called Diversify, where we instead of hoping to achieve diversity amongst our attendees, have decided to make it a core requirement.
Diversify is a weekend hackathon at the Spotify HQ in Stockholm that 40 students from all over Sweden have the opportunity to join. The attending students will be split into a number of cross functional teams where an important aspect is that all teams will have a fifty-fifty gender division. That’s right – the attending crowd of Diversify will consist of equal parts men and women.
