#1 Get informed: Jamile Cruz will give insight into the relevance of EDI strategies in today’s work climate and share why many tech organizations are struggling to find solutions for discrimination, bias, and underrepresentation in the workplace.
#2 Have your questions answered: we’ve dedicated time to discuss questions you might have. During the meetup, use our Slido tool to pose your questions or upvote those that you wish to see answered.
#3 Q&A with CIRA leaders: CIRA members are invited to stay on for 30 minutes immediately following the discussion for an ask-me-anything segment with Sanita Alias, VP, People Culture and Brand and Amanda Swain, Director of Engineering. Dive deeper into CIRA’s goals on EDI, our support for women on boards, and our backing of programs like the newly created Women in Engineering & IT Program at Carleton University; this is one of the first programs of its kind in Canada, which hopes to help close the gender gap in STEM. Stay tuned as we address your questions, live!
