During this tour, 50 community conversations and over 20 panels will take place featuring local community experts across Canada.

With goals such as defining who are women in tech in Canada, understanding what are women’s experiences in the tech industry, and identifying best practices for inclusion and promotion of women in the tech industry, Edmonton’s Women in Tech Community Conversation takes place on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at Startup Edmonton. You are invited to participate in the Community Conversation including networking, the panel of Trailblazing Women in Tech featuring Bree Emmerson of BE3Designs and Ladies Learning Code Edmonton, Stephanie Enders of Startup Edmonton, and Carrie LeClaire of ATB Financial, and research activities.
