Join us for a night of community and collaboration, as we invite the women of Windsor who work in STEM to come together. Thursday, June 30th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM, drop in to Hackforge (255 Ouellette) for an evening of networking and talking all things women in tech.
The goal of the night is to connect women who are working in science, technology, engineering and math fields, or related to them. We welcome everyone curious about the industry to come by.
This event is made possible by the Computer Girls program,coding classes for women by women. In partnership with Women’s Enterprise Skills Training (WEST) and funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, these classes are taught by female professional computer programmers with the aim to get more women interested in coding.
Part of the Computer Girls initiative is to promote mentorship, networking, and support for women already working or looking to start tech careers in Windsor.
Anita’s Network is named after American computer scientist Dr. Anita Borg and her goal of 50% women in computer science. She was a researcher for Xerox PARC and founded the Institute for Women and Technology.
