Discovery Foundation, BC Tech, and BCjobs.ca are proud to host a conversation about diversity and inclusion in tech.

Diversity goes beyond gender. It extends to sexual orientation, age, new parents returning to the workforce, those with disabilities, new immigrants, and beyond. What are tech companies doing to be more inclusive and welcome diversity into their teams? How can you support diversity in your own organization?

Join us for an evening of thought-provoking discussion and networking. We will kick off the event with a panel discussion to discuss why a diverse workforce matters, how we can be more inclusive, and how you can implement D&I strategies at your own company. The event will conclude with a networking session.

This is an inclusive event and safe space aimed at helping those who would like to learn more about D&I strategies in the tech community.
