Join Driving WinTech for Women in Tech Community Conversation, Edmonton! This is a free event, sponsored by Startup Edmonton on Tuesday September 19, 2017 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM MDT, at Startup Edmonton, 301 – 10359 104 St NW, Edmonton, Alberta.

There will be a research activity at this event. The goals of this activity are to learn about women in tech in Edmonton and across Canada, define what it means to be a woman in tech, and identify best practices for inclusion of the women working in Edmonton’s tech industry.

This research activity is for people who:

  • Self-identify as a woman working in the tech industry (or recently left in the past 5 years)
  • Are allies or advocates of women in tech
  • Stakeholders in the tech industry (including government, non-profit, educational organizations or service providers)

Participation in this study requires completing a short questionnaire and joining in the community conversation. Total time of this event will be about 2.5 hours, while the research portion activity will last for about 80 minutes. This is an opportunity to network, share your stories and input, and hear from a panel of powerful women.

Women in Tech World’s initiative, Driving Women in Tech, is a community-based research tour to better understand and support women in Canada’s technology industry. We would like to thank our sponsor for this event, Startup Edmonton.

Everyone knows that we are living in an increasingly tech-enabled world. Not surprisingly, this is reflected in the number of jobs that are now available in the tech industry. The problem is, while the Computer Science workforce has grown by 60% since 1991, the percentage of young women going into the industry has declined (Stats Canada 2011). This needs to change.
