Event Details

As part of this community-based research study, Women in Tech World is conducting a series of research activities, called Community Conversations. Community Conversations provide a space for women to express their experiences in the tech industry in Canada in a comfortable and confidential environment. Women in the tech industry, advocates and stakeholders will contribute based on their experience and expertise in a partnership approach which will result in:

  • National Report on the experiences of women in tech in Canada (barriers, challenges, successes, and resources).

  • Set of Playbooks (regional recommendations) to facilitate more inclusive and diverse tech communities in Canada.

  • Findings and data shared through Women in Tech World Online the World Women Report by the State of Women (85 million subscribers) to ensure active steps are taken as a result of Driving WinTech.

Our aim is to promote diversity and inclusiveness in the tech industry; we invite all those in the community to participate as audience members.

This event is FREE and anyone can attend. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided by our generous sponsors. Space is limited, so be sure to register in advance
