Limited Capacity seats available

It is no secret that the Tech industry and STEM post-secondary education tracks remain male-dominated. The lack of diversity in some of the biggest technology companies, concentrated mostly in Silicon Valley, is becoming a regular feature in the news, while the demographics across small and medium-sized technology enterprises don't fare any better. A growing chorus of business leaders, VCs, influential investors, women entrepreneurs and engineers are all urgently calling attention to this gap and furthering ideas and conversations about how to address this issue. We hope you will join us in our own local conversation about how to encourage, attract, and retain talented women engineers, software developers, and scientists. We also hope to encourage local investors to create more opportunities for women entrepreneurs. 

This Meetup is for everyone. Looking forward to another great evening of inspired discussion.

Capacity: 80
