Live Event: Addressing the Shortage of Women in STEM Jobs

ScribbleLive and Georgian Partners will host a panel discussion on June 12th looking at the issue of the shortage of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) jobs. This initiative is part of Georgian Partners ongoing commitment to getting more young Canadian’s into the technology industry. Earlier this year Georgian Partners announced it is sponsoring Girls Learning Code & Kids Learning Code, the youth programs of the very successful Ladies Learning Code initiative. Georgian Partners believe strongly, both as investors and individuals, that the technology industry represents an exciting opportunity for young Canadian’s from a wide range of backgrounds and they want to see more young people seize that opportunity.

Join ScribbleLive and Georgian Partners for what will be an very interesting discussion looking at the challenges and opportunities facing our industry as we work to expand the technology talent pool to include more young Canadians.

Participants in this live panel discussion will include Cecily Carver, Co-Director of Dames Making Games; Tendu Yogurtcu, VP Engineering at Syncsort; Jen Lamere, a 17-year-old who won the TVnext Hackathon; and Laura Plant, Director at Ladies Learning Code.
