Getting more Women in Technology

If you’ve spent any time in the tech industry or gone to any tech events one thing becomes immediately clear – it is an overwhelmingly male industry. I mentioned this as an issue to the folks at YES Montreal and they have decided to do something about it.

With the help of Status of Women Canada YES is embarking on a 3 year project to first understand, from a Canadian perspective, why so few women enter the tech industry and to propose solutions to fix this gender gap.

If this is something you’re passionate about they have a call for proposals to staff the project. And as it gets up and running if you have thoughts, ideas, input, please let me know and I will get them delivered.

You can find the call for proposals here.
