BC Tech’s Women in Tech Series is in full swing and we’re excited to be a Silver Sponsor. With events taking place until the beginning of December, the #WhatWorks series is featuring roundtable discussions and skills workshops aiming to boost the participation of women in tech. At the end of the series, B.C. Tech will publish a #WhatWorks guide for the industry, a set of practical actionable strategies to include women in real working success stories.
As we represent the government of British Columbia and the people who make up the innovation ecosystem in the province, Innovate BC is proud to be involved in this initiative.
