Driving Women in Tech, an initiative of Women in Tech World, wants to have a conversation with you. To improve the tech industry for women, we need your help to identify the challenges and successes the tech industry brings to women. Join Driving WinTech in Kingston on Monday October 16, 2017, to be a part of the movement.

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.

Participants will fill out a short questionnaire, then join in a two-hour Community Conversation. This provides us with your input, while giving you a great chance to contribute, network and meet a trailblazing panel of powerhouse women in tech! The agenda includes networking, a Community Conversation, and closing questions as well as next steps.

These conversations will help us define Canadian women in tech, understand their experiences and identify best practices to improve the tech industry for women. 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.
