Check out a recap of Stepping Up: Canada's Next Digital Chapter panel discussion – the final panel in BrainStation’s Digital Leadership Event Series.
The tech world may have moved online in recent months, but there are plenty of virtual events planned this month to fill your calendar with inspiring, thought-provoking content.
Here are 13 online events in June you won’t want to miss.
Learn About Diversity in Tech
We’ve spoken before about how to encourage diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Here are two events to discuss and learn more about how to help women and people of color succeed in the workplace.
Women in Leadership: Shaping Stronger Pathways
While career opportunities for women have increased dramatically over the years, representation in the C-suite is far from parity, with only 21 percent of positions filled by women. At what point does this gap occur and why? And how do we work together, across generations and leadership levels, to create stronger pathways for women in the workplace?
Join BrainStation for a cross-generational conversation with industry leaders to explore these questions and discuss the ways we can continue on the road to equality. Sign Up

Donna Alexander and Greg Butler will share and discuss how racism manifests itself within tech, how to address anti-black racism in the workplace, and what companies can do to support their employees.
