50% of young ladies in grades 7-9 say they would consider a future in computer science, from grades 10-12 that decreases to 2%. In 2016 18% of computer science university graduates were female.
You can't be what you can't see. We want to help curb this trend and we believe we can help do that by exposing young ladies to great role models in technology early on.
With the help of inspiring female role models for young ladies in technology this event is an opportunity to expose young ladies in Quebec (ages 10 and up) to these amazing accomplished women.
Speakers will touch on areas such as current state of women in tech, computer science, software engineering, machine intelligence.
This event is meant to be accessible to young women and there parents/gaurdians so it will be on a "no school day" :)
