#DrivingWinTech Community Activation Vancouver

October 31, 2018

Last year, during Driving WinTech’s research tour, tech professionals and influencers spoke up in communities spanning 30+ communities across all provinces and Yukon. And they were confident that the recommendations revealed in #DrivingWinTech Community Conversations would affect actionable change in each of their thriving regions. The time for action is now!

On October 3, Women in Tech World proudly released the findings from their Driving WinTech research tour. You shared your stories and recommendations in safe spaces, joining over 1,500+ voices nationwide, now is your chance to design programming and tools that will impact women in tech in your community. Using the data, experiences, and voices from Canada’s Gender Equity Roadmap, it's time to work together to be the change for women in tech across the nation.

About the Event: #DrivingWinTech Community Activation Vancouver

In partnership with ProtoHack, the Community Activation in Vancouver will put the right people in the same room to brainstorm, conceive of and build programming, tools, or both. Participants will engage with peers, learn from esteemed mentors, and test drive the largest set of qualitative data on women in tech in Canada.

Following this collaborative session:

  • The top three teams will be provided with resources to launch their initiatives in their region
    • In-kind prizes worth up to CAD$10,000 will be awarded to these top teams, and includes development work
  • In-kind prizes of up to CAD$200 will be awarded to each participant (includes extended access to prototyping tools)

With the data we’ve collected and analysed, they encourage participants to transform ideas into programming, tools, or both.
