WOMEN IN TECH REGATTA

January 29 - February 2, 2018

Science World, 1455 Quebec St, Vancouver, BC

This inaugural Women in Tech Regatta Week is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. Dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

The WiT Regatta is an inclusive event. Regardless of your area(s) of expertise, all genders and career levels are welcome and encouraged to participate.

This week is about tapping into our dynamic, talented community. The Regatta has been organized in collaboration with BC’s Women in Tech Coalition that includes 30 local and provincial women in tech groups coming together to amplify careers, actualize goals, define the future of tech and blow our own minds.

ASTTBC members have access to purchase tickets at 35% savings.  For promo code, please contact Karen at ktaylor@asttbc.org.
