Driving Women in Tech rolls into Toronto and not only for the views! Our Community Conversation will discuss everything women in the tech industry face. Whether it’s a challenge, success or funny story, we want to hear from you. Join us in Toronto on Wednesday October 11, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. to have your say.

Partnered with The State of Women Institute and Women Investing in Women Digital, Women in Tech World’s initiative, Driving WinTech, is a cross-country journey collecting data on the current state of women in tech across Canada. Visiting over 30 cities across this beautiful country, Driving WinTech wants to make sure every voice is heard!

This free event is a research activity for:

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

  • Allies or advocates of women in tech
  • Others invested in the tech industry: non-profits, government, schools, etc.

Participating is easy: we just ask you to fill out a short questionnaire, then join in a two-hour Community Conversation. This is a great opportunity to contribute, network and meet a panel of powerhouse women in tech. These are important conversations to have as they will help identify the issues women in the tech industry face so steps can be taken to improve the environment within this industry. The agenda is:

  • 6:30-7:00 p.m. – Networking
  • 7:00-7:30 p.m. – Panel of Trailblazing Women in Tech
  • 7:30-8:50 p.m. – Research Activities: Community Conversation
  • 8:50-9:00 p.m. – Closing Questions + Next Steps

Driving WinTech aims to define Canadian women in tech, understand their experiences and identify best practices to better the industry. This will lead to a national report exploring the barriers, challenges, successes and resources of Canadian women in tech.

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.
