This event will consist of networking with other women in tech and a research activity. The goals of this research activity are: to learn about women who work in tech both in Winnipeg and across Canada. to define what it means to be a woman in tech and to identify best practices for community inclusion for the women working in Winnipeg’s tech 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.
