WCT’s Opening Doors
Women in Communications and Technology are pleased to present a one-day intensive workshop as part of our newest program, Opening Doors.
This event provides those who identify as women with the skills to advocate for policy and systemic change in the Canadian digital workforce.
-Increase awareness of opportunities, pathways, and leadership development for young women professionals through leadership training.
-Improve access to leadership development and advancement opportunities for young women professionals from underrepresented communities through recruitment, networking, and knowledge-sharing.
-Curate tools, virtual learning and supports to equip young women professionals with resources and expertise through a comprehensive resource sharing hub.
-Empower young women professionals to create ongoing change within their workplaces through reverse-mentorship consultations and industry experience opportunities.
-Offer insight into effective diverse leadership best practices and how to instigate systemic change from within the tech industry.
-Foster understanding of cross-cultural organizational leadership and how leaders of today can instil confidence in the cross-cultural, underrepresented diverse leaders of tomorrow through reverse-mentorship consultation with delegates.
-Identify the critical elements of corporate culture that will foster gender equity and an environment where underrepresented communities can contribute diverse perspectives that will lead to success.
The event is open to those who identify as women and are between the ages of 25-35. We strongly recommend that those who are in the early stages of their information, communications and technology sector careers apply, especially those from underrepresented communities. Those working in private, public and academia are encouraged to apply as cross-sector collaboration and exchange increases the value of the program.
