501 Tech Club: Women in Technology Panel #2

NetSquared Victoria (Victoria, BC) is part of NTEN’s 501 Tech Club program.

Women in Tech – Panel Discussion from 3 panelists representing different generations, sectors – and seasons – of a career in tech.

Join us to be inspired, and hear real stories of regular women who found something in technology that delighted them, which sparked them to launch their careers in a predominantly male industry. With only 7% of top IT industry positions held by women, these are rare sightings, and they have extraordinary stories to tell – you won’t want to miss them!

Suggested donation: $5.
