Waterloo -Embracing Diversity
At WPT, we inspire, support, elevate and empower women in technology. Stepping back, we see that women and technology are slices of larger pies: diversity and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). People of all genders, races, backgrounds, abilities, ages and means are needed in STEM to ensure that our local and national economies remain viable.
At this month?s Pub Night in Waterloo, Ontario, we welcome two groups who absolutely embrace diversity and who will share their stories:
– Stephanie Rozek (@srozek, @AvocadoDog) and Terre Chartand (@TerreChartrand) are leading forces behind hackademy.ca, a social venture startup that aims to expose and teach technology to people with a variety of backgrounds.
– Jamie Burton (@dolphinvp) is Vice President, Corporate Development, at Dolphin Digital Technologies, a company which has diversity indelibly engraved in its core values.
When: March 26th at 6pm for casual networking, food and drinks or at 7pm to hear from and engage with our guest speakers
Where: The Rum Runner Pub, Kitchener, below the Walper Terrace Hotel, Kitchener, Ontario.
Cost: no charge ? you pay for your drinks and pub grub
Parking: if needed, use the Kitchener City Lot at Charles and Benton (5-story parking garage with elevator); from there, you will see signs leading to Walper Terrace
Accessibility: please take the elevator down from the Cafe
As always, this is an interactive event. We downright expect questions and dialogue. We also encourage you to spread the word and bring a friend!
We?re looking forward to seeing old friends and new faces on the 26th. Meet you at the Pub!
