Regional Forum on Closing the Gender Gap in Digital Workplaces: Retention, Inclusion and Advancement of Early and Mid-Career Women
April 29 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
There is one woman for every four men in digital workplaces in Canada. This gender gap adversely affects our ability to compete in the knowledge economy and contributes to the ongoing chronic shortage of skilled labour in this sector. WCT reports in their Closing the Gender Gap report that 56 per cent of women leave the ICT industry by mid-career. This forum will focus on real world Canadian case studies about strategies that have been measured, implemented and have repeatedly resulted in improving the growth and retention of women in their companies and organizations.
Join WCT and Simon Fraser University as experts explore winning strategies that help close the gender gap. This forum will focus on strategies for retention, inclusion and advancement of women in Canada’s digital economy at the early and mid-career stages.
