Are we there yet? Gender Diversity and Equality in the Technology Sector Panel Presentation 

The tech sector should be leap-frogging others in gender inclusion so are you shocked that 73% Canadian tech companies have zero women on their boards and 53% have zero women on their executive teams? More women than men obtain post-secondary degrees – except in STEM. Lets talk about this and foster change. This panel co-hosted by CGI and iWIST promises to be a lively review and an opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals.

Join us for a candid discoussion about where we are with gender diversity in the tech sector and - more importantly - how do we get where we want to be?
