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 that women in tech care about and we tackle them together. Each two-hour workshop breaks down into an hour of discussion from a panel of experts sharing their insights. The next hour focuses on interactive, small group discussion where attendees work together to create forward movement.

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 15 local and provincial women in tech groups, with senior execs and startup founders, investors and engineers.
