Join Driving WinTech, a community-based research tour, in Quebec City for a Community Conversation! This event takes place on October 23, 2017 at 12:00 PM EDT.

This research activity is for:

  • People who self-identify as a woman working in the tech industry (or recently left in the past 5 years)
  • Allies or advocates of women in tech
  • Stakeholders in the tech industry (including government, non-profit, educational organizations, or service providers)

As part of the study, participants are required to complete a short questionnaire and take part in a two hour community conversation. This is a great opportunity for women to network, contribute their ideas, and hear from a panel of powerhouse women in tech. 

Agenda

  • 12:00-12:15pm Networking + Introductions
  • 12:15-1:15pm Research Activities: Roundtable Discussion + Lunch
  • 1:15-1:30pm Closing Questions + Next Steps

Engaging in these community conversations will help us better define Canadian women in tech, create more opportunities, and identify the best ways to include and empower women in the 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.
