Building a Brighter Future
The world needs more women in tech. The sector is solving everyday issues and global scale problems. Tech’s changed our culture and community. It’s disrupted our work force, advanced the medical community, and made things easier and endlessly available. Besides the moral argument – gender parity is simply good business.
Tech Manitoba has worked for over a decade to encourage young girls and women to take part in tech and support women in these fields. Our gender parity initiative is working with Tech Manitoba members to tackle barriers and create more inclusive and diverse workplaces that attract, retain and advance women.
GENDER PARITY SCORECARD
Through research and collaboration with Manitoba's tech community, we have developed the Gender Parity Scorecard. This internal auditing tool includes a focus on inclusive hiring, closing the gender pay gap, setting goals and targets, celebrating achievements and advancing women in leadership roles. We're looking for Tech Manitoba member companies to Pilot the scorecard.
Tech Manitoba's membership includes many people who are passionate about equality in tech. We host roundtables and events as well as community panels and workshops focused on issues surrounding gender parity in the tech sector.
If you would like to get involved and meet other women in tech and gender parity champions, please join our monthly Manitoba Women in Tech Meetup Group!
Funding for this initiative is provided by Women and Gender Equality Canada.
