The Hub for Canadian Women in STEM


Symposium on Women and the Workplace

In May 2019, the Government of Canada hosted a two-day Symposium on Women and the Workplace at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. TechGirls Canada was and continues to be a committed and proud participant and contributor to this essential national conversation.


At the event, 240 Canadian leaders and champions of workplace gender equality and diversity shared best practices to inspire and advance women’s participation in the workplace. Presenters and participants came from the public and private sector, unions, academia, industry and human resource associations and civil society organizations.
