Our mission

Increase THE participation and leadership OF WOMEN in tech.

We believe that advancing the full talent pool will make Canada the world's strongest and most inclusive tech ecosystem.  


How we #movethedial


We connect women with the people, resource and programs that expose, educate and advance women in tech.


We use storytelling to celebrate success stories, provide role models and change the face of tech leadership.


We partner with like-minded community organizations to amplify their efforts and measure our collective impact.


We build a deep understanding of the existing tech ecosystem, identify white space, and develop high impact programming to fill the gaps.
