      TECH WOMEN: Driving Diversity: Moving the Dial in Tech and Beyond

      TECH WOMEN: Driving Diversity: Moving the Dial in Tech and Beyond powered by Zekelman School of Business and IT The full and equal participation of women in the economy is not just the right thing to do, it's good for the bottom line. (Source: Government of Canada) That is why we want to connect, inspire and empower women in all levels of the tech and innovation ecosystem to help advance women's economic empowerment. In celebration of Women Entrepreneurship Week (WEW) and our 3rd Annual Tech Week YQG, we are inviting founders, leaders, women in tech, male champions, and professionals to join us in discussing how we can promote successful women leaders and entrepreneurs who are creating a more diverse tech, innovation and business ecosystem.
