Event Info


Relationships are the True Currency. Find your tribe at the Women in Tech Regatta.

From cryptocurrency to crying in the bathroom, polishing your startup pitch to why women turn on each other, we tackle the topics women in tech care about and we tackle them together. Each two-hour workshop features a hour of panel discussion from experts who share their insights. During the next hour attendees break into small groups to share their experiences and help each other to move forward.

Men and women in any role and at any career level in tech are welcome. No dress (code) required.

Have captivating conversations. Enjoy cocktails and candlelight meditation. Get headshots or headspace. Meet your new boss or your new best friend. Connect with 30 local and provincial women in tech groups, with senior execs and startup founders, investors and engineers.
