Women in Tech World is a grassroots, volunteer run organization committed to empowering and celebrating women of all ages in tech.

Over the last 2 years, we have coordinated over 25 events across North America, ranging from skills workshops and industry panels to tech summits and awards receptions.

Women In Tech World is based out of Vancouver, BC – Canada’s #1 Tech Startup Ecosystem. Since 2016, we have grown our team from 10 to 140 outstanding volunteers, and enjoyed incredible support from our community and industry partners in North America’s biggest tech cities. Now we want to meet women in tech-enabled professions from every corner of Canada.

Why is this important?

We are living in an increasingly tech-enabled world, which means that there are more and more jobs opening up in the tech sector. 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). And this isn't a matter of education or preferences:

As reported in Macleans, "Despite an increase in women with STEM degrees, the percentage of women working in the fields has barely changed in almost 30 years."
