On October 20th, be sure to tune into the Women in IT Summit Canada. In this free-to-attend event, Canadian senior leaders will share how they’ve kept their organisations innovative with an eye on inclusion despite the impact of the pandemic.
While the event will be focused on the position and experiences of women in Canada’s tech ecosystem, delegates from across the world are warmly invited to attend.
Attendees on the day can expect in-depth and advice-rich discussions on topics including embracing collaborative and non-exclusionary workplaces, the ‘office of the future’, and assessing flexible working.
A panel discussion that’s not to be missed is “Purpose, purpose, purpose – how do you fill the purpose gap?” and will cover topics including what tomorrow’s tech talent want from their employers, ESG priorities in the next generation, and how leadership should ‘own their purpose.’
There will also be a fireside chat entitled “Burnout – a badge of shame or a badge of honour?” This session will explore how to address burnout on a business level, how to engage in smarter ways of working, and discussing work and life integration “rather than balance.” A number of female business leaders are set to take part in this session, including Joanna Osawe, President and CEO at Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE).
An exclusive afternoon masterclass entitled “Top 5 strategies to becoming a better male ally in the workplace” will be a highlight of the day and presented by Luc Villeneuve, President at software solutions firm Benchmark Corp, will explore what makes a great male ally, stepping up and linking allyship to profitability, and key strategies to becoming a better ally in the workplace and beyond.
There will also be an opportunity to network with international technology figures. To register for your free place, please click here.
