CanWIT is pleased to announce that it will host its AGM at the upcoming i-CANADA Summit in Toronto. The SUMMIT is organized by i-CANADA, the only movement in Canada dedicated solely to the creation of an Intelligent Nation. It is a not-for-profit organization supported by sponsors and backed by Canada’s largest High Technology Organization: the Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA).

CanWIT invites all members to attend both the AGM (at no cost) and the i-CANADA Summit at a discounted rate of $350.00 for the full two-day conference in Toronto. CanWIT is also hosting an interactive Women in Leadership Roundtable on June 4th.

Women in Leadership Roundtable – Finding Strength in Numbers for Women in Technology
Increasing the number of women in Canada’s tech sector is key to the success of Canada’s knowledge economy

90% of Canada’s economy and population are now overseen by women leaders; what will this significant change and others mean to the consultative process? How can we place this conversation within the context of Canada’s tech sector where the number of women working within it remains low (24%)?

Join the City of Waterloo’s Mayor, Brenda Halloran, and members of CanWIT’s National Advisory Council as they host this important roundtable discussion!
