Ready to Start Learning?
Join a dynamic group of like-minded professionals and industry leaders.
The lack of women in technology and startup culture is no longer breaking news. So what are we doing about it? What’s next? Do any effective solutions exist to get more women into the industry?
Join us for an intimate discussion with inspiring local leaders, passionate about the future of work. They will be sharing personal to professional advice on the challenges with diversity and inclusion, and how to achieve career success despite such challenges.
The conversation will focus on what our panelists have seen as effective means to change the ratio. Expect to hear means to action solutions that encourage a sense of belonging at the workplace–to ultimately include all individuals beyond just women.
We'll be closing with a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to ask our panelists questions on leadership, empowerment, breaking stereotypes and much more. This is also a great opportunity to network with like-minded professionals to celebrate leaders in technology.
Our last couple discussions were sell-out events, with past panelists from Uber, Shopify, Hootsuite, Slack, Microsoft, Wealthsimple, and more. You'll want to reserve your seat today. All are welcome, we encourage anyone and everyone to be part of this conversation!
This event is fully catered with coffee and tea available.
