Join Driving WinTech for our Women in Tech Community Conversation in Greater Sudbury! This is a free event on Tuesday October 3, 2017, in Greater Sudbury, ON.

Participation in this event requires completing a short questionnaire and joining in our Community Conversation. The duration of this event will be about two and a half hours; the questionnaire itself will take about five minutes.

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)

This event is an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to your community by sharing your story through our Community Conversation, or research activity. The goals are to learn about women who work in tech, both in Greater Sudbury 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 Greater Sudbury’s tech industry.

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.
