During Maven's first year, we spoke with TECH MANITOBA and Manitoba's tech community through roundtable discussions across the province. Maven invited people to join our conversations on barriers and opportunities for women in tech, employers, and young women in post-secondary and high school. We compiled data and key takeaways from our biggest sessions to share with our Maven community.
Maven and DisruptED's Coffee with Strangers
Maven joined the Coffee with Strangers roundtables at TECH MANITOBA's DisruptED19. The Maven Committee members facilitated six group discussions on topics including parenting and tech, parental leave and childcare, and educators and tech.
Thompson and UCN Roundtable
Maven travelled to Thompson to host a roundtable in partnership with United College of the North (UCN). We welcomed industry and academia to define Thompson's current tech community and strategize how to attract more women.
Maven and ICTC Workshop
Maven welcomed Information and Communication Technologies Council (ICTC) to co-host four roundtable discussion focused on women in tech. Day one invited women in tech, those that have exited and those in post-secondary. Day two invited employers, educators and government stakeholders. We discussed barriers, needs, current strategies, challenges and more.
