Join Driving WinTech for our Women in Tech Community Conversation in Thunder Bay! This is a free event. This event is will occur on Saturday September 30, 2017 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM EDT, in Thunder Bay, ON, Canada.

A research activity will occur at this event, and it is also an opportunity to network. The goals of this activity are: to learn about women who work in tech both in Thunder Bay 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 Thunder Bay’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 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. The time of this event will be about 2.5 hours, and the questionnaire itself will take about five minutes.

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.

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.
