A research activity will occur at this event. The goals of this activity are: to learn about women who work in tech both in Brandon and across Canada, define what it means to be a woman in tech, and identify best practices for community inclusion for the women working in Brandon’s tech industry.

This research activity is for people who:

-Self-identify as a woman working in the tech industry (or left within the past five years)

-Are allies or advocates of women in tech

-Are stakeholders in the tech industry (including government, non-profit, educational organizations or service providers)

Participation in this study requires completing a short, five-minute questionnaire and joining in the Community Conversation. The total time of this event will be about two and a half hours.

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.
