October Meetup – Let’s Go To #itsinourcode

Our October 2017 WPYEG meetup falls during Edmonton Startup Week! Because our meetup overlaps with the slot for the #itsinourcode panel we have agreed to skip the October meetup in favour of encouraging peeps to attend the panel!

#itsinourcode is about recognizing that Inclusiveness and diversity should never be an afterthought…it’s a part of the genetic code that makes us a growing & vibrant tech community in Canada. #itsinourcode is about embracing what makes us successful – learning from each other and the vast experiences and backgrounds we all have. Join us for a live panel conversation with stories and opportunities to learn how to embrace and support diversity and inclusion.

The panel is being hosted at Jobber NOT at Startup Edmonton.

Click HERE to register if you are interested. It’s limited availability!

And we encourage you to come out for more events at Edmonton Startup Week!

See you in November!
