> Goals

ExploreTech Toronto is about exploring and celebrating diversity in the tech industry - in the technology we use, the roles and people. You will get a chance to hear from a variety of speakers who are working on interesting technical projects.

Our focus is in creating technical speaking opportunities for new speakers in Toronto’s technology community and to help achieve true gender balance within our local tech leadership. Our events will showcase at least 50% female speakers.

Come join us for some food, mingling & listen to some interesting talks!

[We run events focused on learning, sharing and growing in tech and want to create a comfortable environment for our members. As such, we ask that recruiters respect our members and our venue sponsors.]
