Employee Diversity with Pride

Each year, TH.0 supports Brighton Pride by hosting an Employee Diversity Hackathon to promote a culture of acceptance and belonging by eradicating employee discrimination in the work place.

Unfortunately Brighton Pride itself has been cancelled, however, our fellow supporters have requested our 2020 hackathon still goes ahead….albeit, a few weeks later than originally scheduled, we are going virtual this year!

Why LGBTQIA?

Unfortunately, equality of professional standing for the LGBTQIA+ community remains questionable within the workplace. We host our annual Employee Diversity with Pride annual hackathons to help promote all year round quality and inclusion.

We call on you to invest your CSR allocation to brainstorm, plan, develop and create solutions that will empower LGBTQIA+ professionals by putting gender-responsive innovations at the centre stage.

FinTech 2021

What is FinTech?

Fintech is a portmanteau of finance and technology. In 2020 many businesses use tech to enhance or automate financial services and processes. The term is a broad and rapidly growing industry serving both consumers and businesses. From mobile banking and insurance to cryptocurrency and investment apps, fintech has broad applications.

Why FinTech?

The Fintech industry is huge. As of writing, there are 41 VC-backed fintech unicorns worth a combined $154.1B.

A driving factor is that many traditional banks and vanguard institutions are supporters of the tech overhaul, actively investing in, acquiring or partnering with fintech startups- all in the name of moving the industry forward and staying relevant. You can be a part of that change.

INTRODUCING THIS YEAR'S

CHALLENGES

#ClimaTH0n

Air Pollution from Particulate Matter
How can major cities in the UK, such as London, implement real change to reduce the harmful pollution which is compromising the health of its citizens.
We understand that emissions from diesel engines in vehicles are the primary cause of the issue, but what measures can be taken, perhaps to help businesses that rely on travel in and out of the city, to achieve more sustainable supply chains.
Protection & Restoration of the Natural Environment 
The government has highlighted the importance to reverse the impacts on the landscape of the natural environment as a priority where ‘more action is needed.
But what can be done to help engage communities to connect with aspects in nature including public forests, woodlands, species protection and cleaner & water.
Flooding
Aggressive storms and rising sea levels have become more prominent, and are set to continue, making the risk and impact of flooding more damaging to people and their livelihoods.
It is expected that coastal communities in Wales and Scotland will be of those most likely to suffer the consequences.
What can be done to protect these communities, and help them to develop catchment-based strategies that will not only raise awareness but help catalyse ideas for change that will better tackle flooding from a localised point of view.
Overheating in office buildings
The majority of working spaces were purposely built with the intention to keep heat in, to cope with harsh winters.
But as summer temperatures continually rise, the working conditions are less than favourable unless your business can bear the financial strain and in-efficiencies of air-conditioning units.
 
What can be done to ensure business owners can save costs whilst simultaneously offering workspace environments that can easily adapt to changes in temperature and meet green targets.

INTRODUCING THIS YEAR'S

CHALLENGES

#TH0BlockchainAI

Blockchain in Insurance

How can Blockchain integration in the insurance industry save you $700 a year and save the industry $80 Billion?

One of the oldest industries may faces stagnation. Blockchain could  make companies more profitable and more transparent. Listed by Forbes as the next major disruption. Will you be a part of that innovation?

Blockchain in Supply Chain

Our second challenge will focus on Blockchain intergration to the GSC (Global Supply Chain).
Throughout 2020, our supply chains have been greatly disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst the GSC has been out of date for a long time, it was brought into sharp focus this year.
How can Blockchain be intergrated into and update the GSC? How can it make it more efficient and accuarate?

AI Combating Education Inequality

Children in countries with the poorest access to education can only expect 5 years. With so few educational resources to go around, the chance of moving out of poverty is less than 1%.

AI could change that.
How can Advanced AI, Machine Learning and Starlink combat this injustice?

AI in E-Commerce

Amazon made $12.9 Billion from recommending items last quarter. Hyper accurate recommendations are possible because of the incredible amount of data Amazon holds on each user. Smaller e-commerce stores have limited resources with which to create recommendations and thus, are unable to compete with e-commerce giants. Can open source AI begin to turn the tide?
