About this event
Gender diversity in the workplace is crucial to the technology industry but still lags far behind other industries. But since technology knows no gender, no color and no age. It makes no assumptions, holds no biases, and has no bounds. When used for good, technology can level the most uneven playing fields and better the world, such as it has for the Province of BC with a 38% diverse technology workforce.
Join us for lunchtime event and hear opening remarks from Honorable Minister Lisa Beare, BC MLA and Minister of Citizens Services.
Then we will move into a panel discussion with three women who continue to pave the way for diversity within the Government of BC’s public technology sector. You will hear how they all progressed to their current roles and how they have led the way forward to shape BC’s digital future.
