Maven and UCN Roundtable: Women in Technology

In 2017, a Dell report said that 85 per cent of jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't been invented yet. Technology is the future, yet currently, in Manitoba, only 27 per cent of women work in the technology sector.

Maven is ICTAM's latest initiative that is committed to the attraction, retention and advancement of women in technology.

We invite you to join our roundtable discussion to tell us about your experience with the technology sector. Your voice will help Maven in its work towards gender parity in Manitoba's technology community.

* This is a free event, if you don't have an ICTAM login, just register above under the guest log-in.
